Dublin University Boat Club
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.
DUBC has an exciting Freshers’ Week planned. We will be recruiting on Saturday at Trinity Hall. Then from Monday to Friday, Front Square will host the annual Freshers’ Fair, where DUBC will have a stand. Our Open Day will take place at the Boathouse on Thursday at two o’clock, which will be a perfect opportunity to see what DUBC is all about.
