DUBC hosts successful Alumni races.

Members of DUBC, past and present, gathered at Mortlake Anglian Alpha Boat Club last Sunday for the annual Alumni races on the Tideway.

The event was extremely successful, both for reuniting old friends as well as raising support for DUBC. The club’s president, Franz Imfeld said ‘It was fantastic to see such a great turn out. I am very thankful for all the support that has gone into making such an occasion happen.’

The main event was racing in eights on a short 400m course, finishing just in front of Mortlake BC. The boats were made up of a mix of alumni and current athletes, both men and women. In total there were 7 teams.

These 7 boats battled it out, until two finalists remained. But before the final, the teams were able to feast on a fantastic array of food, courtesy of the catering and organisation of women’s cox, Char Jackson.

In the final, the winning team won by a convincing margin, coxed by Tom Hill. A result he was ‘very pleased with’.

Next on the DUBC agenda is Quintin Head, which will be held on the Tideway at the end of January.
