Goff Fights Through Headwind to Qualify for European Under-23 Semi-Final

2nd September 2017

#Rowing: Ireland’s Adrew Goff has qualified for the A/B semi-finals at the European Under-23 Rowing Championships. The UCD man finished third in his heat this morning in Kruszwica in Poland. Goff started well but, in difficult, headwind, conditions, he yielded the lead to Jan Cincibuch of the Czech Republic, who won well. Goff and Enes Yenipazarli of Turkey, who finished second, then firmly established themselves in the next two qualification places. This was by far the fastest of the heats, with all three qualifiers inside the winning time in heats one and three.

 The weather has been extraordinary at the venue: the opening ceremony had to be cancelled because of torrential rain and the temperatures dropped from 30 degrees on Thursday to half that on Friday.

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.
