Last week DUBC’s Novice and Senior squads travelled up to Enniskillen for our annual winter training camp, where we boated from Portora/Enniskillen Royal Boat Club. Following the Christmas exams, camp provides a great opportunity to build momentum coming into racing season. Primarily rowing in pairs and fours, the day was divided between technique work and building up milage. 

Flat conditions with periods of snow allowed the Senior squad to row nearly three hundred kilometres over the week, while the Novices sat into their racing shell (Spirit of ’66) for the first time and built up their own technique and milage.

Thank you to Enniskillen Royal Boat Club for facilitating some fantastic mileage. We look forward to returning for Erne Head of the River in just a few weeks.

Key dates in the DUBC racing calendar:

  • Erne Eights Head of the River – March 2nd 
  • Colours Boat Race – March 30th.
  • Trinity Regatta – May 18th.
