BUCS 4s & 8s Head - 24/25 February 2024
Report from 2023

We enjoyed looking after 12 university and college boat clubs on our side of the river for the 2023 event. It got a bit windy and wavy for the first division on the Saturday (a couple of swampings) but calmed down for the afternoon and for the beginners on Sunday. Durham University BC swept the board in overall, open and and women's categories - well done! The BUCS Head web page is here for full details and results.

BUCS 4s & 8s Head - February 2020 - report
The premier winter student rowing competition came to the Tyne on Sunday 23 February 2020. It should have run on Saturday, the day before, as well but an adverse weather forecast intervened. So the top crews were moved from Sat to Sun and the beginners got the chop! Division 1 had gone well in the morning, but wind and waves appeared over lunchtime.
The Division 2 start was brought upstream a bit to avoid choppy water for marshalling at Derwenthaugh, but otherwise went as planned, although very hard work for the crews against a strong west wind. Newcastle University BC turned up trumps and won both Women's and Men's Victor Ludorum prizes.
