Dublin University Boat Club
Rowing on the Liffey since 1836
DUBC and LEBC took part in the 100th anniversary commemoration of the end of World War I with the Royal British Legion last Sunday. A great many members of DUBC and DURC died in the war effort. We will remember.
This weekend saw DUBC send an VIII to Boston to compete in The Head Of The Charles. The crew was selected off the results of a pair matrix held at Lough Rynn held a month prior using our new Swift Pairs. We are very grateful to all the support from Alumni who made this trip possible and it was a fantastic weekend for the club as a whole. Back in Dublin, the rest of the team had a row over the weir. DUBC came 11th in the Men’s Club Eights event out of 36 entries, further information about the results can be found in the records section for the present season here. An article documenting a trip by Trinity College to the USA in 1873 can also be found here.
Sculler Turlough Hughes made history today by becoming the first DUBC oarsman to win the Dublin Sculling Ladder with an impressive time of 6:31.67, just edging out last year’s winner by 0.98 of a second. This comes after a successful day at The All Ireland Youth and Open Regatta two weeks ago where he made the A final. The full set of results can be found here.
Dublin University Boat Club is the rowing club of Trinity College Dublin. Established in 1898, the club continues a tradition of rowing excellence practiced in Trinity since 1836. Among the oldest rowing clubs of the world, DUBC maintains a long history of success at domestic and international level. Multiple wins at National Championship events feature prominently alongside victories at Henley Royal Regatta and Irish University Championships. DUBC’s accolades span the breadth of competitive rowing, from novice level to World Championship and Olympic representation.
Rowing for DUBC offers the opportunity for intensive training in both sweep and sculling boats, accommodated by state of the art, high-performance facilities for both land-based and water training. Professional coaching structures and individualised training programmes facilitate the development of the student athlete, while encouraging the high academic standard demanded of students at Trinity.
