Cambridge Autumn Head was CUWBC’s first race of the year and it was the first chance for the new squad to show what they could do. We entered a lightweight eight, which raced twice, and 4 coxed fours (3 heavyweight, 1 lightweight), who also raced as 2 eights. The lightweight eight posted two good times, but they were beaten by two of the fours who combined to race as an eight. This crew posted the fastest women’s time of the day, winning the Senior 3 category.
The fours also performed well, winning both the Senior 3 and Senior 4 categories.
The focus now is on the Fours Head of the River Race in two weeks time. Four crews have been entered; two in WS2 4+ and two in the WS3 4+ (academic) category.
