Important Volunteer Roles

Dublin Crew relies on parent volunteers to:

  • transport the boats and a food trailer
  • set up tents
  • prepare food for rowers and families and,
  • most importantly, cheer on the boats!

In Between…

In between races, you can enjoy the festive atmosphere, sit back and relax or lend a hand in the food tent.

Regattas are day-long events so Dublin Crew sets up tents for the athletes’ rest and relaxation and for food service. Meals and utensils are provided for athletes and families.

Dress appropriately for the weather.

Layers are best. Don’t forget hats and gloves, as weather dictates. For spectators, comfortable shoes are important because regattas can involve lots of walking – to and from the boats, parking

For spectators, comfortable shoes are important because regattas can involve lots of walking – to and from the boats, parking lots, and the tents along the 5K and 2K courses, and to the results board and awards presentations.

Items spectators might want to bring:

  • Lawn Chairs
  • Beverages (water at food tent is for rowers only; families provide their own beverages)
  • Reusable Water Bottle
  • Sunglasses and Sunscreen
  • Binoculars
  • Cameras
  • Umbrella / Rain Gear / Boots / Towels
  • Reading Materials
  • Blanket
  • Team Spirit!

Rowers and coxswains need to bring:

  • 7/16ths wrench (on a lanyard) for boat rigging
  • Both uniform tops (tank and long-sleeve) and black spandex shorts
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Extra clothing, including socks
  • White racing hat / black fleece hat (optional items to be worn during races)
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen
  • Team spirit!

Dublin Crew rowers have had many successes on the water and in school.

The team has made seven appearances at the USRowing Youth National Championships since 2006. We have placed seven rowers on USRowing Scholastic Honor Rolls. And Dublin Crew athletes have gone on to row at more than 30 colleges and universities across the United States.
