Plagued by illness in the run-up to the Head of the River Fours on the Thames, DUBC saw mixed successes. It seemed to be a day for lightweights with Leander’s LM4x winning the Headship. The crew included alumnus Nick Fearnhead and ex-apprentice coach Keiran Emery.
DUBC boated flagship quads for our Men and Women’s squads. Both were disappointed with the results – particularly the men for whom a crash cost them the pennant. One of the crews that performed well was our almost lightweight quad pictured here. They finished comfortably ahead of Newcastle’s top boat and Oxford Brooke’s 2nd boat.
This weekend sees DUBC take to the Tyne in force for the Rutherford Head. Best of luck to all crews from our 1st 8s to our Fresher 4x+s
