Dublin University Boat Club
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:

The Henley campaign for 2018 began with a bang. Trinity successfully qualified our Senior 8+ in the Temple Challenge Cup, off the back of some tight racing at Marlow International Regatta. Many thanks to Eton College for being gracious hosts and training partners.
The Senior 8+ raced in the first round of the Temple Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday the 4th against University of London ‘B’. Our 8+ successfully negotiated the opening round of the Temple with a victory over UL. This set up a showdown with Syracuse University on the Thursday. Unfortunately the 8+ was defeated in the second round by the powerful Syracuse crew.
The crew returned immediately to Dublin as the focus turned to the Irish National Championships.
As our senior 8+ prepares to embark on their pre- Henley Royal Regatta training camp, the club is excited to reveal that Jack Wills have, in the last week, become the official regatta wear suppliers to the Henley 8+ for the 2018 campaign.
Exciting times call for pastel shirts and block colour chinos, apparently, with the university outfitters making sure the boys remain presentable in the march on Henley.
