After a couple of weeks of settling back into our term timetables, we travelled to London to train and race on the tideway. We raced Quintin Head and the squad had a very successful day. Our crews placed 1st and 2nd overall out of all of the women’s Eights who raced on the day, winning the pennant for their respective categories. The CUWBC 1st VIII won the Elite category and placed 33rd out of 227 eights, ahead of many men’s crews.
On our second day on the tideway we had some side by side fixtures with St Paul's School.
