DUBC have a strong season opener at Quintin Head.

DUBC sent six boats, both Men and Women, to Quintin Head in London last weekend. The course is 4.6km stretching from Chiswick Bridge to Harrods Depository and is a key warm-up event for the ‘Head of The River’ at Easter.

The men’s squad had a strong performance with all three boats finishing in the top twenty. The first eight came fourth (less than two seconds behind the winners Imperial College), the second eight 13th and third eight 17th. Such a result demonstrates the depth of talent within the team.

The women’s eights came 58th, 73rd and 100th respectively.
