Winter Training Camp

DULBC's first and second year novices are in Blessington this week to kick start 2012 with a winter training camp. Despite high winds and a few 'little' waves, the crews all got onto the water this afternoon after arriving this morning. Staying in Avon Ri on the shores of the Pollaphuca Reservoir gives us an amazing opportunity to train twice a day on miles of open water. The first year novices are excited by their first trip away from the congestion of Islandbridge and the second years are enrolled in 'Sculling 101' - for some improving skills learned over the summer, and for others the chance to scull for the first time.
