BUSA Regatta
Mon 7th May
A knock-out regatta in Nottingham for University Crews
A few of the better college crews occasionally enter this event, racing as "Cambridge University (name of College)". For other universities, this is one of the most important events of the year, as the regatta is a good opportunity to do side-by-side racing on a multi-lane 2K rowing lake.

1st women's VIII (Women's Junior VIIIs): Raced 3 rounds: 6th in the final

LMBC erg champs
Sat 12th May
4000m on the erg in a relay team of 8.
A Queens' Ergs-a-like event, but for senior rowers. Significantly fewer entries than Queens' Ergs, since senior rowers know considerably more about how painful 500m on the erg can be. Raced over 4000m in teams of 8, changeover technique can be crucial since the clock is left running between team members.

Poplar Regatta
