Rowing on the Liffey since 1836


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+
