Last Weekend, DUBC travelled up to Leitrim to compete at University Championships. This was the first time that the event was to be held at Lough Rynn, which has only been set up as a rowing venue within the last few years. DUBC is no stranger to this course as we have made extensive use of it for seat racing and training camps.

With boats rigged, and oarsmen ready to push off from the slip, University Championships was provisionally postponed due to inclement weather. The two Novice VIIIs were the only DUBC crews to race. The A boat fought bravely in challenging conditions, but ultimately missed out to UCD by a 1/4 length.

We hope that the remaining events will be raced at a later date. The novice crews that raced are available here.
