The Club's Results

Summer 2008

Henley Royal Regatta
Wed 2nd - Sun 6th July
The premier regatta in the UK, founded in 1839, attended by top club, university and school crews from across the world.

Henley IV (Prince Albert Cup): Qualified in the qualifying and Lost to Glasgow University by 1.5 lengths in the 1st round

Welsh 3000's
Sun 13th July
Walking (or running) round all the peaks above 3000' in Wales. The time is taken between leaving the first peak and reaching the last.
The Welsh 3000s, also known as the Fourteen Peaks (or Fifteen Peaks if you count Garnedd Uchaf) is a full day's walk taking in the three highest ridges in Snowdonia, the Snowdon Massif, the Glyderau and the Carneddau. It involves about 50km in distance, with around 3500m of ascent, not including the initial climb to the starting point. Completing the walk in a day is a substantial challenge.

Peterborough Summer Sprint
Sun 10th August
A 4-lane 500m sprint on the Peterborough Rowing Lake.
A good chance to beat some quality opposition as they nurse their hangovers well into the afternoon.

Super Pair (Senior2 2-): Lost by an uncertain amount in the heats and Second (out of 3) in the final

Michell Cup
Sun 31st August
The Michell Cup, presented in 1923 in memory of Dr. R. W. Michell, is awarded by the CUCBC to the Boat Club giving the best performance on the river during the course of the academic year.
Points are awarded to Boat Clubs according to their performances in the CUCBC run-events. The rules governing the allocation of points can be found in Section 6 of the CUCBC Handbook.

Boston Marathon
Sun 21st September
31 miles along the river Witham from Lincoln to Boston.
First rowed in 1946. It's still a long way. The race includes carrying your boat over a lock. It's making me tired just thinking about it.
