#Rowing: The Ireland team for the World Rowing Championships has been weakened by the non-availability of Gary O’Donovan through illness. The Skibbereen man formed the lightweight double with his brother Paul which took silver at the Olympic Games in 2016. Their 2017 campaign brought them silver at the European Championships and silver and bronze in World Cup regattas. Paul O’Donovan will now defend his World Championship title in the lightweight single sculls at this year’s regatta, which begins on September 24th in Sarasota-Bradenton in Florida.

 Gary O’Donovan will travel to the Championships as a spare.

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.
