UCD Boat Club, founded in 1917, celebrated its centenary in 2017 and marked 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.
A new Boat Club tie was also commissioned and is available to order here. The specially commissioned bow tie and cufflinks sets sold out before the Centenary Dinner.
The club continues to digitise its records and gather as much material as possible from alumni to present its history online. Timeline highlights milestones for the club so far while Seasons includes information on every major win and international representation achieved by 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:
