DUBC at GB Trials

This weekend saw a party 5 women and 13 men from DUBC travel Down to Boston for the first of this season’s  series of British rowing trials. Sadly  the normal 5 kilometer water assessment had to be abandoned due to the forecast of strong winds and rain, leaving just the 2k ergo test.

Despite this setback DUBC’s men and women put in a particularly impressive performance including 11 PBs, and a national 2nd and 3rd placing at under 23 level from Callum McBrierty and Angus Groom respectively, with just a tenth of a second separating them.

The next set of assessments will be taking place in February, and will give DUBC’s athletes a chance to prove on the water what they have now proven off the water.
