#Rowing: Denise Walsh and Margaret Cremen finished fifth in their heat of the lightweight double sculls at the World Cup Regatta in Belgrade and must compete in a repechage as they seek a semi-final place. There were just two places on offer in the heat and Britain One and the United States One asserted control early on and took them in that order. Ireland found themselves behind four crews from early on in the race and the order did not change.

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.
