After a long ( and seemingly never-ending!) Winter of training the first big race of the season is upon us. Over the weekend both clubs will be in competing at BUCS head against the the best UK Universities have to offer.
On Saturday 24th Feb, Novices Ladies and Men are in action, with two 8+s and one 4+ from each club being entered, offering them a chance to cut their teeth at a competitive level for the first time. Sunday 25th sees the Intermediate squad in action, with 2 x 8+s and 3 x 4+s in competition.
With the trailers packed on Thursday evening, and final preparations complete, all that remains is to take to the Tyne and leave everything on the water. The squads have put in some serious mileage over the Winter, with unwavering commitment and grit, and Saturday finally lets them put everything they've grafted for, to the test. Results will be posted on here over the weekend and I'm sure you'll join me in wishing them all the best in their quest to bring home the medals.
