DUBC Race to Spain

Durham University Boat Club are doing a sponsored ergo on the 27th January in an attempt to ‘Race the truck to Spain’, where we will have our Easter training camp this year.

The truck will be taking our boats to Ourense in Northern Spain, ready for our camp on the 21st April. However, we want to prove that it is faster to row the distance by completing the 2000km on the ergs in less time! To achieve this, we will have to complete the row in less than 22 hours, the predicted travel time of the truck.

Any money raised from this row will go straight into the boat club. We are raising money to buy new boats, including a new Women’s first 8 and Men’s pair. Any contributions will be greatly appreciated!

To sponsor us: 1. Go to https://www.dunelm.org.uk/donations/experience-durham-donation

2. Enter the amount you would like to donate

3. Select DUBC in the ‘Designation’ drop down menu

4. Complete any additional information and payment details

Please note, we have had issues with the FundRazr account (https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/715wt7/ab/e5S4k9 ) that we have set up for this ergo. Any donations that have already been made to that account are fine, but for future donations, please use the link above.

Thank you very much in advance!
