Excellent weekend for UCC RC at London Met Regatta June 2nd & 3rd
The depth of our squad was really shown as UCC put in great performances on both the Saturday and Sunday of the regatta as we take medals in 5 events!
The boats left Cork on Wednesday the 30th to make the trip to Dorney Lake by road, and the squad traveled by air to arrive late Thursday afternoon. Friday was spent at the course rigging the boats and training on the lake before a weekend of racing in the hot sun and high humidity!
