The University of London dominated the Championship openweight sweep events in Newcastle, at the 2018 edition of BUCS Head, taking Gold in all six events.

UL won both Men’s and Women’s Championship Eights, and backed up these performances with victory in both Men’s and Women’s Champ Coxless and Coxed fours.

The UL Men’s and Women’s 2nd Eights also performed very well, winning Silver and Gold in Intermediate Eights, and the Men’s 3rd & 4th Eights and Women’s 3rd Eights performances completed a very strong overall team performance.

The UL Women dominated again, winning the Women’s VL (Team Trophy) for the 2nd year running, adding to Women’s Team Trophies won at BUCS Regatta in 2016 & 2017. ULBC medalled in all Women’s openweight events in Newcastle, winning the Championship Eights title for the third year running.
