World Championships, Lucerne ~ The World Championships were held from 22nd to 29th August 1982 at the World famous Rotsee Lakes in Lucerne. The Garda coxed IV were selected, but never really got it together and finished a disappointing tenth. The IARU annual report stated:
This experienced four was inconsistent throughout the year, and neither in its heat nor repechage did it seem in danger of making the vital qualifying places for the final. In the Petite Final they led to halfway but faded in the second half to finish in fourth place (6.32) and tenth overall.
