OUWBC Trial 8s 2016 Report

On the 30th of November we boated two matched 8s for the Annual Trial 8’s Fixture.

Trial 8s gives us the opportunity to race against each other in a competitive environment down the whole Boat Race Course. Trial 8s is great racing practice and lets ourselves and the coaches learn more about each other as athletes, the course, the pain that comes with such a long race and everything else the tideway has to offer! 

The Race did not let us down, the crews were separated by 2 feet (0.7) of a second at the finish line after a gruelling 6.8k!

Please follow the link below to read the official Boat Race Report which goes into much more detail about how the race unfolded.
