UCD Boat Club, founded in 1917, celebrates its centenary in 2017 and is marking the occasion in a number of ways.
The club commissioned a once-off centenary one-piece in the classic St Patricks blue with Saffron trim style used by many crews throughout the club’s history with the 1917-2017 milestone marked on the back. Alumni and current members alike have received theirs and it will be in action at regattas throughout the year.
A new Boat Club tie was also commissioned and is available to order here.
The club is digitising its records and gathering as much material as possible from alumni to present its history online. Our Timeline highlights milestones for the club so far while Seasons includes information on every major win and international representation achieved by our members. This will be continually improved and contributions are most welcome to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club hosted an ‘At Home’ Regatta for UCD Boat Club, UCD Ladies Boat Club and Old Collegians members at Islandbridge on May 21st. Check out the photos here or video below:
