UCD Sailing Team Success on the Liffey at Annual Colours Match

This years Colours match between UCD Sailing Club (UCD SC) and Dublin University Sailing Club (DUSC) was held on Saturday the 14th of April in Dublin City.

UCD SC successfully brought home the Colours trophy which was won by DUSC at last years Colours. With a newly introduced format as of last years competition the results of all the teams counted, and UCD 2 sealed the deal at the last minute securing the necessary result. UCDSC Commodore Roisin O’Brien along with her committee organised the one day event which took place on the Liffey.

This win comes after a successful few weeks for UCDSC, winning the Silver fleet at the IUSA Inter-varsities, won overall by UCC, as well as UCD 1 coming third and attending the BUSA Championships in Scotland. UCD1 and UCD2 came 2nd and 3rd respectively, and UCC came1st, in the IUSA Student Yachting Nationals in Howth Yacht Club where UCC took home the trophy, also organised by UCDSC the weekend previous.

As the college sailing club breaks up for exams and the summer season the students now look forward to what next year brings.
