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.
