General notes to all incoming members of the club on how we conduct ourselves as members of the Dublin University Boat Club.
The following are notes on the sport from the DUBC Novice website from back in ’99 (yes the internet existed back then), when most of you were still wetting the bed (apologies to those who still are, hopefully you’ll grow out of it!)

These are not meant to replace any form of coaching you receive; that means listen to your coach, not some website!
