26 Feb Head of the Trent
This year’s trip to Nottingham for the annual Head of the Trent saw both the Blue boat and the Lightweights win their divisions. The Lightweights put in a strong race and came away the victors in the WS3 8+ over the 6000m course. Encouragingly for the Blue boat, they won the Senior 2 division, despite a steering difficulty that forced a stop and re-start in the middle of the race. Blondie also raced well, despite a near miss on the same bridge which interrupted the Blue Boat’s race. Overall, it was a successful trip with two crews taking the pennants and spurring CUW on towards Boat race day.
