#Rowing: The Ireland lightweight men’s quadruple of Eoin Gaffney, Hugh Sutton, Ryan Ballantine and Miles Taylor took a bronze medal today at the World Under-23 Championships in Sarasota Bradenton in Florida.

 Italy made a tremendous start. They pushed clear of the other five crews and led all the way to the finish line. France and Ireland slugged it out behind them, with the French closing on Italy coming to the line. Ireland also finished fast, but while they overlapped France they could not catch them.

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.
