#Rowing: NUIG won a two-boat battle with Commercial in the men’s senior eights final at the inaugural Lough Rynn Regatta in Leitrim today. The young crew had just under two lengths to spare. Daire Lynch of Clonmel and Ronan Byrne of Shandon won the men’s senior double – a notable victory for this junior crew as they set out to prove their capacity to the Ireland selectors. Portora had an excellent day, with their club one eight being the best women’s crew. The regatta was a success and was run in spectacular conditions, with bright sunshine and calm water.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
