Weeks before the Boat Race, our crews relish the opportunity to race at the Women’s Eights Head of the River (WEHORR) on the Tideway. The event was founded in the 1930s with 5 crews participating and this has grown to over 320 crews with nearly 3,000 women taking part.
The same distance, although the opposite direction to the Boat Race course, this event is a great opportunity to soak in once more the atmosphere on the Tideway before the big day. The race has a strong international appeal with crews travelling from all over the UK and abroad to race. CUWBC is able to race against crews from clubs, universities and schools, this is an important race for for the team.
