#COASTAL ROWING: The third annual Dublin Currach Regatta will take place on Saturday, the 4th of July, between the iconic bridges and in the heart of the city on the river Liffey.
 
Sponsored by Dublin Port Company and Dublin City Council, this is the third year that the east coast has the privilege of hosting a currach regatta included in the national currach racing league.  This year the annual  Dublin currach regatta will take place for the first time ever on the river Liffey in the heart of Dublin city centre.
 
Following many years of forging contacts between east coast currach rowers and teams on the west coast of Ireland, this is the first year that the western teams will come to Dublin to compete in a championship fixture.
 
Currach racing teams from Donegal, Kerry, West Clare, The Aran Islands, Connemara and  Galway will attend. Both women’s and men’s crews will be competing as well as the traditional mixed crew race, Fear agus Ban.  The races will feature qualifying heats following on to senior men’s and women’s finals as well as mixed crew racing.
 
All races will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 16:30  and the heats and competition can be viewed all along the Liffey quays right up to the Jeanie Johnston for the duration of the regatta.

#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.

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.

The English crew cut across from their station at the start and took a lead which they did not relinquish.
