Women’s Captain

Helena Barton

I started rowing at King’s Canterbury just over 3 years ago. Since coming to Durham I’ve won medals at BUCS, gold at EUSA and got through u23 GB final trials. After being vice last year, as captain I want to do more to help with the success of the club and support each individual to be the best they can.

Hattie Watson

I learnt to row with DUBC in my first year through the Development Squad. I had a wonderful year and the highlights of winning Gold and Silver at my first BUCS regatta and rowing at Women’s Henley six weeks later tempted me back to join the Senior Squad. I ran to be Treasurer during my Third year as I wanted to be involved with running the club that has really shaped my university experience. Despite being a History student, I secretly enjoy working with numbers!

Fundraising Manager

I rowed for 9 months before coming to Durham, at Twickenham Rowing Club. Having worked with charities and done lots of voluntary work before I loved the idea of raising money for a good cause while brining the squad together and having fun while doing it.
