With 204 days until the 2017 Henley Boat Races and 211 days until the Cancer Research UK Boat Races, Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club have begun their Campaign today.
The large and experienced group of student-rowers met at the historic Goldie Boathouse to begin the trialling process which will culminate in the world-famous races against Oxford next spring.
Chief Coach Rob Baker said: “We’ve got a really exciting squad this year and we’re looking forward to seeing what they can achieve. It’s a good mix of returners from last year’s squad, new undergraduates and postgraduates and rowers who have come through our Development Squad.”
The Henley Boat Races will take place on Sunday 26th March, The Cancer Research UK Women’s Boat Race will take place on Sunday 2nd April.
