Dublin University Boat Club
Rowing on the Liffey since 1836
Following the cancellation of the Irish Open, a fantastic day of racing was had yesterday at the Dublin Sculling Ladder.
With 22 DUBC men competing, from Senior level to first time scullers, the first race day of the season was a solid outing for the squad.
With our top 8 scullers finishing just shy of the overall club prize, our strongest finish in recent memory was recorded.
Special congratulations to our fastest sculler Turlough Hughes, who finished third overall.
Great turn out for our first novice erg session.
If you couldn’t make it to either slot tonight don’t worry, there’s more slots on Thursday at 6 and 7 to give it a go.
If anyone out there has signed up and not got an email from us or just didn’t get a chance to sing up, email Charlie at email@example.com and he’ll sort you out.
Great to get the season going again with a pre season training camp to Carrick on Shannon. Getting a few miles in the legs and working off the off season bellies.
A special thanks to Carrick Rowing Club for letting us use their facilities.
