What an incredible day of racing in Wales for the Rowing Ireland clubs. It was finals day today consisting of the remaining B finals and all of the A finals. Weather conditions were extremely tough as there were some high winds and larger waves than yesterday but hat didn’t stop our crews from dominating in every event that we entered.
The CW4x+ saw Castletownsend RC taking the first medal of the day which was a bronze medal against some incredibly tough competitors. Monika and Rhiannon absolutely dominated not long after in the CW2x event and had an incredible race considering the tough conditions and placed second in the A final for Killorglin.
Adrian Miramon Quiroga won a gold medal in the CM1x event for Wicklow RC. Adrian capsized in the 2021 A-final of the WRCC and had an incredible recovery to win the bronze medal that year. This year he absolutely dominated this event despite the same tough conditions and finally secured the title from the very start.
We finished strong with another medal win in the CMix2x event. Monika and Patrick won the bronze which was an incredibly tough battle against the Spanish double (ESP01) and both crossed the line together. The Spanish pair managed to just get ahead of the Irish double by just 0.09 seconds but we couldn’t be prouder of the hard work and determination of all of these Irish crews.
We would like to congratulate every crew who raced over the weekend in such tough conditions.
