#Rowing: Paul O’Donovan and Gary O’Donovan won their first race at Henley Royal Regatta with plenty to spare. The Skibbereen double scull sprinted away from Leander’s Stephen Cox and Tiernan Oliver at the start and left them well behind for the rest of the contest. The winning marging was a quarter length shy of five lengths.

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.
