UCCRC Captain 2015-2016.
Stephen O’Connor and David Synnott took part in the men’s lightweight sculls with Stephen finishing in 1st and David finishing 5th. Both proceeded into further testing and this led to David moving up to fourth. Stephen and David will go on to trial again in June as part of the LM4x- and LM2x respectively that are being put forward for selection for the U23 World Championships in Rotterdam this August.
Jack Casey will also go forward to trial as part of the heavyweight 4x- for U23 World Champs as well in June.
UCC also took the title of the Men’s Club Four after a very strong race from Tomas Power, Alex O’ Riordan, Stephen Murphy, Neil Mc Swiney and cox Rachel O’ Leary.
Skibb Regatta saw some very strong and promising results for UCC, with the club winning a total of 7 events and claiming all of the Men’s Inter sweep titles. UCC claimed victory also in the Women’s Inter Pair raced by Clodagh Scannell and Linda Murphy, Club 2 Men’s 8+ and Club Scull won by David Synnott.
