18 Feb CUW at Nottingham
On Sunday 18th February, CUW sent three eights to race along the 6km course of the Head of the Trent. Conditions saw grey skies, little wind and a very fast stream. Having won the inaugural Robin Haslam trophy last year, the first CUW crew was entered as Senior 1 and started behind a crew from Reading RC. They raced well to receive the trophy for the second year running, in a time more than three minutes faster than last year.
The lightweights were entered as Senior 2. They were unlucky to be drawn against a slick crew from Agecroft, but finished second in their category in a time of 17:18.
The second heavyweight crew raced in the Senior 3 category, amongst twenty other crews, and came second to a Grosvenor crew in a time of 17:44.
