The Cambridge University Women's Boat Club (CUWBC) is looking for people to trial in the next academic year in order to row in, and win, the Henley Boat Races against Oxford in March 2006. If you enjoy rowing or coxing, are enthusiastic and willing to train hard to improve and would like to represent the University in a major sport, then you have already met the initial criteria for trialling. Trialling begins in the second half of September 2005 and in order to race you must be in statu pupillari in March 2006. Before trialling, CUWBC runs a development squad for a month in the summer. Details and an application form are now available.

The 2005 Blue Boat celebrating their win. After three successive defeats in the Women's Boat Race Cambridge finally turned the tide and secured their first win since 2001. A massive congratulations to the CUWBC Blue Boat who beat OUWBC Blue Boat by 2 1/3 lengths in a time of 6.27.

With a convincing victory at the Head of the Trent on 20th February safely under their belt, the Blue Boat set off for London well prepared and confident of their ability to produce a good race against national and international opposition on the Tideway. The Blue Boat hadn't raced in 2004 due to illness, so took the starting position achieved by last year's lightweight crew at 11th. Difficult weather conditions with low temperatures and stiff, gusty winds were always going to make the race a challenge for all crews, and were reflected in significantly slower times compared with 2004.
