dbo:abstract
  • Durham University Boat Club (DUBC) is the rowing club of Durham University. In recent years, DUBC has cemented itself as one of the strongest university boat clubs in Great Britain. Under the leadership of former British Olympian Wade Hall-Craggs, DUBC notably won the BUCS Victor Ludorum for ten consecutive years (2004-2013), and has produced a number of athletes that have competed internationally at European and World Championship level. Based at the Robert Gillespie Boat House on the River Wear, the club also operates facilities from the adjacent Graham Sports Centre at Maiden Castle, including a powered indoor rowing tank (one of only three in the country at the time it opened) and a gallery of 28 ergometers. It competes annually at all major British rowing events, including the Head of the River Race, Henley Royal Regatta and Henley Women's Regatta, and contests the Boat Race of the North with Newcastle University Boat Club. Rowing at Durham University is divided into the college boat clubs and the more advanced university crews arranged by DUBC, with intercollegiate events overseen by Durham College Rowing. In common with other university sides, the team's colour is Palatinate, said to derive from that worn by the armies of the medieval Prince-Bishop of Durham. (en)

dbp:quote
  • Quite apart from the fact that they will do credit to their Varsity rowing, they will make people in the South realise there really is such a place as Durham University. Too often, when Durham is mentioned, there are murmers of "Theological College," etc., and it is surely the duty of every Durham man and woman to enlighten the ignorant on this matter (en)
