DUBC’s Novice 8+ on their way to Colours Victory 2019

This Monday, the 28th of September, marks the beginning of a much-changed Freshers’ Week. While life in Trinity has moved online, Dublin University Boat Club is eager to welcome new members to the sport of rowing.

DUBC has a tailored training programme for Trinity students with no prior rowing experience. Based at our boathouse in Islandbridge, a dedicated and experienced group of coaches will guide the development of our beginner oarsmen throughout the year.

Newcomers train and race in the novice category, which consists solely of other beginners. Within a few months, novices can expect to go from taking their first pull of an oar, to racing in regattas across Ireland and abroad.

Rowing for DUBC is special for a multitude of reasons. For some, it is the competition and hard work that attracts them to the club; for others, it is the friendship and camaraderie. Both reasons are equally valid.

Virtual Trinity Regatta

In the midst of Coronavirus, Trinity Regatta had to be cancelled this year. This didn’t stop us from making the most of a bad situation, so we help a virtual Trinity Regatta using Zoom.

All things considered, this was a successful endeavour, thank you to all of the generations of alumni and friends who made our first ever Virtual Trinity Regatta a memorable success. Safe health to all members and friends of DUBC and LEBC. Onwards to Trinity Regatta 2021.

Trinity Regatta Cancelled

With much sadness, the Trinity Regatta committee is announcing the cancellation of Trinity Regatta 2020, which was scheduled to take place on 9th May 2020. This decision has been made in the interest of the safety and well-being of the competitors and volunteers, in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to thank all those who have been involved in the organisation of the regatta this year and all the crews which had planned to compete, from Ireland and abroad.
