Quintin Head, London
An extremely chilly Quintin Head was the first race of 2015 for OUWBC, taking place from Chiswick to Hammersmith in London.
Although in the opposite direction to that which we will be racing on the 10th and 11th of April, being able to increase our familiarity with, and comfort on, the Newton Women’s Boat Race course was invaluable. We entered two eights, testing out some potential line ups of Blue Boat and Osiris crews.
Our combinations came first and third out of all women, with the crew in the Women’s Elite category placing an impressive 31st out of the 232 crews entered. We are all very excited and pumped for our upcoming fixtures as we get ready to make history in April.
We would like to thank Imperial College for accommodating us when we are in London, and our sponsors for the warm kit that meant we didn’t catch frostbite whilst waiting for the race to begin!
