Exciting addition of two new boats to UCC’s fleet!
This month saw the club take delivery of two brand new Filippi boats to UCCRC! The two boats, an Eight (8+) , and a Coxed Four (4+) are both constructed with state-of-the-art materials, such as carbon fiber, Kevlar, and honeycomb. This includes other aspects of the boat such as the seats and wavebreaker. The riggers are also made from lightweight aluminium. These lightweight but strong materials provide high quality strength and performance to the boats.
Both the eight and four have a broad crew weight range (70kg-85kg for the 8+ and 60kg-80kg for the 4+), thus enabling them to be used by both the men’s and women’s crews of the club.
These boats usually come in a standard all white colour with blue stripes. However our new boats have been custom painted in the college and club colours providing a cool and unique look.
There is no doubt that these boats will provide a solid and high performing platform for our rowers to perform to their maximum potential.
