Cambridge Autumn Head
Sat 1st October
2,600m head race upstream on the River Cam organised by Rob Roy Boat Club
Near the start of Michaelmas term this is an early barometer of a crew's speed for Fairbairns or more a test of the captain's organisation in getting a decent boat out so soon after term starts. Also, an opportunity to try out a IV in preparation for Uni IVs.
