CUBC’s Men’s crew to take on Leander on Sunday 30th January

Leander Men’s Chief Coach Matt Beechey commented “It’ll be great to host Cambridge this weekend. Racing the Blue Boats is always an exciting race opportunity and is a really fun and enjoyable experience that hopefully both sets of athletes can learn from . It’s a pleasure  to welcome them to Leander, and to see some of the guys who have previously represented the club again.”
