#Rowing: Ireland had two impressive wins in their first races on Saturday at the World Junior Championships in Racice in the Czech Republic.

 The Ireland junior men’s quadruple looked like they were out to make a point in their C/D semi-final. They started well, established an early lead and never showed any sign of letting it go. They will now have one of the favoured lanes in the C Final for places 13 to 18.

 Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne will also compete in the C Final after their semi-final win. The two girls from Workmen’s also led through the race. Croatia had an overlap for much of the 2,000 metres, but Moynihan and Browne moved clear in the final quarter.

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.
