One of the great days for Irish club and university rowing will be marked at Henley Royal Regatta this year. The Henley stewards have asked the Trinity eight which won the Ladies’ Plate in 1977 to mark the fortieth anniversary with a formal row over.

Trinity had last won the Ladies’ Plate Challenge Cup over a century before, in 1875. The 1977 crew beat Pembroke College, Cambridge in the final by three and one third lengths in a time of six minutes 53 seconds.

That year the crew also won the Gannon Cup and the Universities’ Championships and represented Irish Universities at an invitational event in Egypt.

The Trinity senior coach of 1977, Robin Tamplin, sadly died this year and the crew will be rowing in a boat named in his memory. Tamplin, a former captain and president of Dublin University Boat Club, rowed for Ireland at the London Olympics at Henley in 1948.

In 2015, Sean Drea rowed over at Henley. The Neptune man had won the Diamond Sculls in 1973, 1974 and 1975.

The Ladies’ Plate is the top eights’ event at Henley for club and university crews below The Grand Challenge Cup, at which heavyweight international crews compete.

Henley Royal Regatta is the most famous rowing regatta. Founded in 1839, it continues to draw crowds as a social event, while top rowers from around the world take part.

The regatta runs from June 28th to July 2nd this year.

They had carved out a one and three-quarter length lead by Fawley, and while the Irish crew kept them honest, they could not reel them in.

#ROWING: Trinity bowed out of the Temple Cup for student eights at Henley Royal Regatta, losing by two-thirds of a length to Cornell University of the United States. Cornell, who had a close call against Oxford Brookes B in the first round, got off to a good start and took the lead. The heavier Trinity crew were able to limit that lead to about three-quarters of a length, but could not draw level, and encountered problems with their steering. Cornell covered a late push to win.

#ROWING: Portora Royal School lost to Gonzaga College High School by half a length in the fastest race so far in the Princess Elizabeth at Henley Royal Regatta. The Enniskillen crew gave a remarkable display, refusing to let the bigger American crew extend their early lead to clear water. The crews overlapped down the course, with Portora mounting repeated pushes. Gonzaga finished well under pressure and won in a time of six minutes 38 seconds.

#ROWING: Portora Royal School brought Ireland’s winning total to two on the first day of Henley Royal Regatta. The crew from Enniskillen got off to a good start against King’s College School from Wimbledon in the Princess Elizabeth for schoolboy eights and stretched their lead to one length. But the Wimbledon boys would not give up. They ate into the lead coming up to the line and lost by just two thirds of a length.

Trinity had earlier won in the first round of the Temple Cup for student eights.
