Commercial's men's junior 18A quadruple were almost as fast, winning their class in nine minutes 22.6 seconds.

The fastest women's crew was the Commercial club one eight, while the Tribesmen/Athlone combination came home fastest of the mixed masters eights.

Brian Colsh of Sligo came home fastest of the junior men's single scullers; Molly Curry was the best women's junior single sculler.

The conditions were surprisingly good, with the water calmer as the afternoon went on.
