Ireland Sends Team to Coupe but Not World Junior Rowing Championships

#ROWING: Ireland’s junior teams for the Coupe de la Jeunesse and the Home International Regatta have been named. Based on performances at the European Junior Rowing Championships, Rowing Ireland decided not to send a team to the World Junior Championships.

Crews listed have been selected on the basis of performances at trials throughout the year, and on the provision that they show continued improvement in performance levels.

A plan will be drawn up by so that all selected junior crews will get in training days mid-week where possible when schools are out or over weekends prior to the Irish Championships. Crews will go into training camp after the Irish Championships up to the departure dates for competition.
