Light Blue Crews Announced for BUCS Regatta

Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club (CUWBC) has announced it’s crews for the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Regatta which will be held at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham this weekend.

CUWBC will field 19 crews in both openweight and lightweight categories to race against crews from over 70 other Universities in the largest student regatta in Europe. Our crews will range from Championship to Beginner level with the Beginner crews featuring rowers who have learned to row this year with their College Boat Clubs and are now part of CUWBC’s Development Squad with the aim of trialling for the 2019 Boat Races.

At the 2017 BUCS Regatta, CUWBC won 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze with medals in all open Championship sweep events and 3 Championship Lightweight events.

Each racing day begins with a time trial over 1500m with side-by-side racing over 2000m following based on those results.
