The Queen’s Rowing clubs would be nothing without our dedicated athletes and volunteer coaches. With 30 senior athletes training frequently throughout the week, let us introduce the captains, committees and coaches that are the cogs to our rowing machine.

Captains 2019/20

QUBBC Captain: Miles TAYLOR

I first took up rowing like many others in school when I attended Methodist college, but it wasn’t until my first year of university where my passion for the sport ignited in QUBBC, where the coaches, captains and athletes were friendly and encouraging. By the end of the year I had earned my first BUCS medals and had represented Ireland for the first time in the Home International Regatta. Leading into my second year I had the opportunity to compete in the European University games and in my third win a medal representing Ireland at the World U23 rowing championships. My future goals in the sport are to continue rowing internationally at senior level.


I started rowing at Queens under the novice programme as a complete beginner, and then transitioned into coxing. Joining the club allowed me to enter a completely new sport with no experience. At Queens I’ve been able to compete at a number of different events including BUCS and Irish Championships, in the past season I was part of the intermediate squad that placed 10th in the Women’s Intermediate 8+ at BUCS regatta and won a t Irish Championships in the Women’s Novice 4x+. I am excited as Captain of QUBLBC to see what the 2019/20 season has to bring for everyone in the club.
