Waterford Boat Club had good reason to celebrate with two club members selected to participate at the Home International Regatta in Strathclyde park Scotland on the 27th July last bringing home silver.
Both oarsmen trained hard all year round to get the chance to compete at such a high level. O’ Brien a leaving cert student from Waterpark College & Dolphin a 1st year student in UCD came together to race the Men’s Lightweight Pair. Both athletes endured a long winter of both gym & on the water sessions, culminating in the opportunity to represent both club and country. Coach Eoin Whelan & Club Captain Ger McCarthy are extremely proud to see such dedicated young athletes come through Waterford Boat Club.
Notably, Waterford Boat Club’s Lisa O’ Callaghan was also the overall Team Manager for Ireland at this event in Strathclyde.
