Deadline 1st July. http://jobs.tcd.ie
DUBC travelled to Lough Rynn on Sunday for the University Championships. The event had been originally scheduled for its usual slot in April but was postponed due to high winds.
In the opening race of the day, DUBC took home a tight victory in the Club 8+, beating NUIG into second place. An hour later, the Intermediate 8+ event won, beating UCD by clear water. With UCD having won the Novice race at the original event in April, this set up a showdown for the Wylie Cup in the senior event.
In the final race of the day, the Senior VIII+ raced well but ultimately lost out to an experienced UCD crew. This was the first race in the stripey for Lucas Prodohl, rowing in the bow seat.
The squad is now looking forward to competing at Cork Regatta in two weeks time.
Congratulations to the DUBC Novice VIII+ who were victorious over their opposition from Queen’s University at The University Boat Races in Belfast on Saturday. The crew sprinted into the lead off the start, and pushed away through the middle of the course to win by two lengths.
With our first crew at Lough Rynn training for the University Championships, our second crew raced in the senior event against a strong Queen’s crew. The race was close in the opening half of the race, but they ultimately came up short against powerful opposition.
Thank you to everyone at Queen’s Sport for running such a well-organised event.
