Excellent Light Blue Results at BUCS Regatta

Excellent Light Blue Results at BUCS Regatta

Cambridge 7th May 2019. It was a great weekend of racing for Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club (CUWBC) at British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Regatta which was held at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham this weekend.

 

The CUWBC Squad demonstrated strong performances across the board, highlighted by six medals, three gold and three silver, as well as achieving two fourth place finishes.  Chief Coach Robert Weber commented “I’m extremely proud of our athletes especially in how they were able to switch gears so quickly and seamlessly on the heels of the Boat Races. Some of these crews had only managed one or two (or even no) sessions together before racing.”

 

“ In addition, our Development Squad crews got some valuable racing experience, with the WInt4+ winning a hard earned spot in the A Final. We look forward to welcoming many of these athletes trialling with us in September.” He added.

 

 

CUWBC fielded a total of 13 crews in both openweight and lightweight categories to race against crews from over 70 other Universities in the largest student regatta in Europe. The crews ranged from Championship (10 entries) and  Intermediate (three entries) with intermediate crews featuring some rowers who have learned to row this year with their College boat clubs and who are now part of the Development Squad who are aiming to trial for the 2020 Boat Races.
