I had a successful season just gone with DUBC, winning a bronze medal at the European University Games. I started rowing as a junior for Henley Rowing Club in 2012, and I hope to use my experience coming from a strong junior rowing programme, to lead the women’s squad, build on the success we have had, and leave it in a better place.

I started rowing back in 2011 at Borlase as a 13 year old. The highlight of my rowing career is racing for Great Britain at the Coupe de la Jeunesse in 2015 in the M8+ winning 2 bronze medals. I will be assisting Oscar and Wade in the back end organisation of the club and hope to leave it in the best place possible for future Durham Athletes.

Will Guy

I started rowing just last year in the Development Squad. Having enjoyed the successes of three medals at my first BUCS Regatta, I’m looking forward to stepping up into the Senior Men’s Squad this season as Christian’s vice-captain. I will be on-hand to help Christian support each member of the squad to bring out the best in every athlete and crew.

I first stepped into a boat in Autumn 2013, and having rowed for Dulwich College in Junior Part, am now coming into my 4th season of rowing at Durham University. I am eager to continue establishing the Boat Club’s presence over social media, and to harness the advantage of interconnectivity, from junior athletes to alumni.
