#Rowing: Commercial’s strength and depth were very evident at their own regatta at Islandbridge in Dublin today. After a huge programme was worked through, many of the finals involved the host club – some with two home crews competing against each other. The Intermediate eight was one such race. In the club eight, Trinity came out on top.
