The time of six minutes 29 seconds was fast – bettered only in the Temple this year by Brookes’s time in the semi-final when they beat Cornell University by half a length. Cassells, a 20-year-old oarsman from Coleraine, competed for Ireland at the World Junior Championships and, in a pair with fellow Bann clubman Chris Black, won gold twice at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in 2011.
