#Rowing: Sanita Puspure took second in her semi-final and qualified for the A Final of the single sculls at the World Cup regatta in Belgrade, Serbia. Denmark’s Fie-Udby Erichsen took over the lead early and won, with Puspure and Kara Kohler of the United States not far behind as they crossed halfway. However, the anticipated move from Vicky Thornley of Britain upset the order. She pushed up beside Puspure, who held on to second. Kohler missed out and finished fourth.

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.
