Dublin University Boat Club
Trinity Rowing has a long and successful history, with both Dublin University Boat Club (DUBC), and Dublin University Ladies Boat Club (DULBC) respected and recognised internationally. The 2015-2018 strategy for sport established the foundations of a student sport pathway, with participation, education, and performance sport structures being implemented. Rowing, as one of four focus sports continues to grow under this model, with a collective plan in place and an emerging staff infrastructure. This position is key and will further establish a foundation for attracting and supporting toplevel student rowers in the future. Reporting directly to the Chief Rowing Coach (DUBC), this position will provide coaching, development, and logistical support as required in operating the full DUBC rowing program. The main emphasis of the role will be to provide coaching, operational and administrative support across the full DUBC rowing programme as directed by the Chief Rowing Coach. The post holder will also be heavily involved in athlete recruitment, community engagement, and club development and education working with colleagues within the sports development unit and the club.
DUBC completed another season with a win in the Club 8+ at the National Championships. Second place in the Intermediate 8+ and fourth place in the Senior 8+ rounded off some hard-fought racing from Trinity crews in Inniscarra.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered and supported our rowers throughout the season.
Well rowed Trinity.
It is with great sadness that DUBC announces the passing of Sir Anthony Hart, an alumnus and wonderful supporter of the club.
Sir Anthony passed away this morning in hospital in London after becoming unwell at the weekend while at Henley Royal Regatta, where he was supporting Enniskillen Royal Boat Club. He helped their Junior Men’s Quad launch for the opening round of the Fawley Challenge Cup last Thursday morning.
Sir Anthony was a well known and respected High Court Judge in Northern Ireland who, more recently, had led The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry.
The Captain and Officers of the Boat Club extend their deepest sympathy to Sir Tony’s wife Lady Hart and all members of his family circle.
