Dublin University Boat Club
Rowing on the Liffey since 1836
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
And that’s it for the 2017 rowing season, DUBC’s 150th. We’ve had many victorys and even more tight losses, in what was a very enjoyable and exciting season.
We owe a huge thanks to Charlie Cunningham and all of our coaches, professional and volunteer, all of our alumni and family supporters, and all others who work tirelessly to allow us enjoy rowing for DUBC as we do.
We will be back next year for the 2018 season with more experience, more desire to win, and in a great position to do that, but for now our athletes will take a well deserved break after a brilliant season.
Thank you all, and well rowed Trinity!
