Welcome to the 2018-19 season!
DUBC athletes and alumni had a busy summer, with some representing Great Britain at EUSA in Portugal and the Under 23 World Rowing Championships in Poland. EUSA was highlighted by our lightweight women’s quad who won a bronze medal and our four GB athletes all performed well with Lauren Irwin placing 4th in the Women’s eight; Oscar Lindsay 5th in the Men’s coxed four; James Vogel 8th in the Men’s pair; and George Bourne coming second in the Men’s spare singles race. This is the highest number of athletes DUBC has had in the GB U23 team since 2011 and with all of them returning, next year looks to be promising.
At a senior level Hanna Inntjore race in the Norwegian Women’s Quad at the European Championships at Strathclyde Park and James Harris coached a crew from the GB women’s team. Matthew Rossiter also raced in the GB Men’s Pair at the Europeans.
We had three alumni at the Senior World Championships. Angus Groom narrowly missed out on a medal by half a length in the men’s double sculls. Elsewhere Matt Rossiter finished eighth in the men’s pair and James Harris coached the women’s eight to a strong sixth place finish.
