#Rowing: Cork Rowing Club moved smoothly into the second round of the Thames Cup at Henley Royal Regatta with a straightforward win this morning. They took an early lead over London Rowing Club ‘A’, and extended it to one length by half way. They stayed in their rhythm and a push by their opponents made little difference; they went on to establish a clearwater lead by the enclosures.
In the Double Sculls Challenge Cup, Tiernan Oliver, rowing with Leander for the summer, teamed up with Stephen Cox to win their heat. They will meet Paul O’Donovan and Gary O’Donovan tomorrow.
