#Rowing: Graeme Thomas and John Collins ended the run of Nathan Hull of Queen’s University and Olly Dix of the Leander in the Double Sculls at Henley Royal Regatta today. The Britain double were superior in this open event, gaining a clear lead and holding it for much of the 2112 metres. Hull and Dix closed up to their rivals at the finish. The verdict was given as one length.

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.
