According to the statistics team at Commercial, a sophisticated multi-linear regression analysis proves that Slot 1 at 10 am was the fastest of the day.
This year, Commercial had 45 entries. In both 2013 & 2012, we had 48 entries. In 2010, Commercial had 47 entries. In 2015, we hope to field 50 rowers on the 50th DSL event as part of our “50/50 vision“.
The Dublin Sculling Ladder was founded in 1965 by Michael Johnston (who made an appearance yesterday). It always runs on the second Saturday of October.
Note: Racing by Challenge Races will continue in the 49th Dublin Sculling Ladder until the last Saturday in March 2015.
