Boomer and McQuillan-Tolan Fifth in World Rowing Repechage

26th September 2017

#Rowing: The Ireland pair of Fionnán McQuillan-Tolan and Patrick Boomer finished fifth in their repechage today at the World Rowing Championships in Florida. They will compete in the C Final. The top three secured places in the A/B Semi-Finals. Serbia were impressive winners, taking over from Spain in the middle stages. These two held the top spots to the finish. Behind them the United States clung on to third.

 Ireland pushed fourth-placed Argentina hard in the third quarter, but it was the South Americans who finished best – they came close to ousting the United States and taking the crucial third spot. The host country held on by just .35 of a second.

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.
