RIP Rob Van Mesdag

It is with great sadness that DUBC wishes to announce the passing of former club president Rob Van Mesdag.

Rob was a great supporter of DUBC for many years. He will be greatly missed. RIP

National Championships 2018

DUBC’s Senior 8+ have concluded the 2017/18 season, placing 4th in the final. Earlier on, our Club 4+ raced brilliantly but ultimately came up short in their final, finishing 2nd out of 27 entries.

While both crews are very disappointed with the results, DUBC is proud of all that has been achieved this year and the culture that our new coach, Richard Ruggieri, has created. We are hugely thankful to everyone who has supported us throughout this season and look forward to coming back stronger next year.

DUBC’s results at the National Championships:
4th – Senior 8+
3rd – Intermediate 8+
3rd – Club 8+
2nd – Club 4+
2nd – Novice 8+

DUBC, founded by the amalgamation of DU Boat Club and DU Rowing Club in 1898, has a long history of rowing success with Championship wins, Henley wins, World Champions and Olympians to its name. Rowing for DUBC offers the opportunity for intensive sculling training in the club’s sizeable fleet of small boats as well as the sweep rowing typical of University clubs.

Senior DUBC rowers have the opportunity to race UCD in the prestigious annual Gannon Cup Colours race and represent the university at national and international competitions including Henley Royal Regatta.
