Durham College Rowing Crest

Durham College Rowing (commonly abbreviated to DCR) represents all sixteen College Boat Clubs in Durham University, encompassing approximately half of the rowers, scullers and coxes in the region of North East England[1].

As well as organising trailers to competitions off the River Wear, DCR also organises inter-collegiate events, coaching and launch-driving courses, swim tests, and implement and enforce the regulations as set out by the Durham University Rowing Board.

DCR also provides a forum for College Captains to meet and discuss current rowing events, particularly safety issues, with each other and with the Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee consists of the Captain of Colleges, who represents College Rowers at a University and regional level, a Coaching Coordinator, who arranges coaching and launch driving courses, and also a Treasurer, Secretary and Press Officer. The Regatta Secretary sits on the Executive Committee and also leads the Regatta Committee, who are responsible for DCR competitions. The current Captain of Colleges is Alexandra Seymour-Pierce[2].
