#Rowing: Cork Boat Club raced well but made their exit to New Jersey crew Montclare Mounties in the Thames Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. The Americans started powerfully and took an early one-length lead. Cork stayed calm and bit chunks out of the lead as the crews entered the enclosures area. Montclare would not yield: they finished well and won by three-quarters of a length.
NUIG secured an early lead and held it until the final stages of their race in the Prince Albert for student coxed fours. Columbia University then swept past and won by one and three-quarter lengths.
Yale, with Daire Lynch in the three seat, beat Princeton in a thrilling race in the Temple Cup. Princeton, who had trailed, darted to the line and came within a canvas of winning.
