Blues and Colours Ball 2019



On Friday 22nd March, for the 2019 Blues & Colours Ball, DUBC were awarded the prestigious Club of the Year award for the second year in a row - the first consecutive win for a club since 1984! The honour recognises the continued dedication of the club's committee, captains, coaches and members in furthering the development of the club. In retaining the title for a second year, the club's elevated standing within Dundee Sports Union is cemented, proving that the boat club is performing above and beyond it's inter-club competition.

But it's not just the wins and competitive success that contributes to this award - it's the organisation of every single training session, on land or on water, the coordination of race weekends up and down the country, the integration of all members through exciting socials, the fundraising efforts for local charities, the management and development of the club's image, both internally and externally - the list is endless. For the committee and club members in attendance, the award was the cherry on top of an already fantastic night at the Old Course, St. Andrews. Many thanks to the University Sports Union for organising such an enjoyable night and congratulations to the Men's Team of Swimming & Waterpolo for winning the 'Team of the Year' trophy!
