|In the Silver Goblets and Nickalls' Challenge Cup, Tom Rose and his partner Tom Dyson, rowing for Cambridge University Lightweight RC were unlucky to be drawn against the Danish pair, B.B. Helleberg & T. Ebert. This pair had recently won the Lightweight men's pairs at the Eton World Cup, and Ebert is a reigning Olympic champion and was ranked by FISA as one of the world's top ten rowers in 2004. The race merited a mention in the Daily Telegraph. The two Toms are now focusing on the lightweight category at the National Championships and we all wish them every success there.|
Jon Davies stroked a Rob Roy BC four in the Wyfold Challenge Cup, but was beaten in the first round.
Steph Richards, who won the Ladies' Plate with Leander Club in 2004, was again coxing their Ladies' Plate entry. After beating crews from Sweden and Ireland, the crew raced Cambridge University BC in the final. They were unable to match a crew consisting primarily of this year's Goldie colours, which won by one and three quarter lengths.
Cambridge University Women's BC, featuring Alla failed to qualifer for the Remenham Cup.
First and Third withdrew its entry from the Temple Challenge Cup, an event for which no Cambridge College crews qualified. The only Cambridge College represented in the regatta was Clare BC who lost in the first round of the Men's Student Coxed Fours.
[Very many thanks to Simon for this summary.]

|Seems we can't even keep track of members of Black Prince (Cricket Club), as Clare we not the only college who raced: Kris Coventry represented Queens' in the Diamond Challege Sculls, progressing to the semi-finals where he lost to Charlie Palmer of Cantabrigian by one length (having been some two and a half lengths down at Fawley).|
