Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club have appointed Rob Baker as their new Chief Coach. Rob brings a combination of international and Tideway experience to the role, as CUWBC looks to transition to producing world class athletes competitive over the intense Tideway course in 2015. Rob has spent the last four years at Rowing Ireland where he has been working as Lead Under-23 National Coach. Before that, Rob was Assistant Coach at the Cambridge University Boat Club, where he coached the winning Goldie crews in 2006 and 2007, and acted as Head Coach in 2008.

Rob commented, “I am absolutely delighted that the CUWBC have asked me to be their new Chief Coach. It will be an honour and a privilege to lead the club into the first Women’s Boat Race on the Tideway in 2015. I am very excited to be working alongside the CUBC on a level playing field and to help develop the CUWBC into one of the best University Boat Clubs in the world.”

The 2013 Newton Women’s Boat Race will take place on 24th March at Henley-on-Thames.
