BUCS REGATTA 2017 – UL Women Dominate & UL Men Step Up In Champ Events

Posted by | Men's Squad, Races, Women's Squad | May 02, 2017

BUCS Regatta 2017 saw the UL Women retain the Women’s Team Trophy for the 2nd year in a row and the UL Men row down Oxford Brookes in both the Championship Eights and Championship Coxed Four events.

The ULBC Men had a strong weekend. Gold in the Championship Coxed Four and Gold in Championship Quads were two highlights after Saturday’s fantastic eights racing. In the Championship Eights final the race developed into a dual between UL and Oxford Brookes. UL rowed down Brookes’ Temple eight but the Brookes Ladies Plate eight held off UL, as UL took the Silver medal. CLICK HERE for link to video.

The ULBC Women won the Women’s VL (Team Trophy) for the 2nd year in a row with Gold medals in Championship sweep, sculling, open weight and lightweight events. This success in part prevented Durham, Oxford Brookes, Newcastle and Edinburgh from winning a single Women’s Championship Gold medal between them.

Results further down through both the Men’s and Women’s squads were also strong, including a medal for the Men’s 2nd Eight in Inter Eights and victory in Women’s Inter singles. Victory in the Inter Women’s Quads meant UL won both the Women’s quads events on day 1.

For a full list of medals won see below. We’d also like to congratulate UCL on their fantastic Bronze medal in Women’s Beginner Eights.
