Foster Fairbairn Pairs
Tue 23rd April
A 2000m knock-out regatta for coxless pairs as part of the Small Boats Regatta - raced in the 'chasing' format (boats starting 100 yards apart) from the posts before the motorway bridge to those by the pink house in the Reach.
The small boats races generally attract only a small number of entries - and by regularly entering crews we have had many successes in recent years. Glass and Davies won their races easily to reach the final, where they lost by a narrow margin to CCAT.

The famous Cambridge University May Bumps on the River Cam
The highlight of the college rowing calendar involving a total of over 1500 students - 100 at Trinity

Henley Women's Regatta
Fri 21st - Sun 23rd June
A 1500m side by side knock out regatta on the Thames passing by the famous Temple Island and finishing near the centre of Henley.
A prestigious regatta with many international crews competing alongside the finest national clubs. College VIIIs this year had forty-three entries with many university crews, including Cambridge and American universities, racing alongside college eights from Oxford and Cambridge. The event often clashes with the last day of the Bumps and so Cambridge college crews are often unable to enter.

Women's Henley VIII: Lost to Trinity College Dublin in the 1st round

Marlow Regatta
Sat 22nd June
A knock out multilane regatta over 1450m on the Dorney rowing lake.

1st men's IV, Henley IV: 2nd of 5 in the qualifying

FaT vs BPBC Cricket Challenge
