UCD Give Trinity a Fright at Neptune Regatta

1st April 2017
Trinity's senior eight. Trinity's senior eight.

 

#Rowing: Trinity’s senior eight won at Neptune Regatta – but only just. UCD, with less than a full-strength crew, stormed back at their rivals coming up to the finish and lost by just half a canvas. Commercial beat the hosts in the men's junior eight and also won the women’s club one eight. An Islandbridge eight beat a crew from Dutch club Nereus in an invitational eights event.

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.
