#Rowing: Georgia O’Brien of Kenmare took Ireland’s second gold of the day at the Coupe de la Jeunesse regatta in Hazewinkel in Belgium this afternoon. The single sculler had won her heat in the morning session and she did it again in the A Final in a slightly faster time, just pipping France’s Virginie Liot. Britain’s Jane Hardie took the bronze.

 Earlier, the Ireland junior men's quadruple had taken gold.

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.
