#Rowing: Ireland’s women’s double scull of Aileen Crowley and Monika Dukarska qualified directly for the semi-finals of the World Cup in Belgrade this morning. They took the third of the three places of offer in their heat. The Netherlands won well and China One, who had led in the first quarter, took second. Dukarska and Crowley were third through most of the race but had just 3.4 seconds to spare over Switzerland at the finish line.

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.
