#Rowing: Portadown had an excellent day at their own regatta, taking the men’s Club One eights final. Bann, who also did very well, took the women’s club two eight. Belfast Rowing Club took the women’s senior quadruple title and UCD the men’s club one coxed quadruple. On a day where the wind became an increasingly important factor, some of the junior 14 and junior 15 events had to be cut.

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.
