The Oxford University Women’s Boat Club took part in Quintin Head on Saturday, completing the course as the fastest women’s crew.
OUWBC entered two crews, both possible line-ups for The Cancer Research UK Boat Races. Completing the course from Hammersmith Bridge to 400m past Chiswick Bridge in 13:28.1, a possible OUWBC Blue Boat were more than 21 seconds ahead of the next fastest women’s crew, winning the Elite women’s event and showing good early season form on the Championship course. The potential Osiris line-up placed fourth overall, second in the Senior women’s category, finishing in 13:59.7.
The Cancer Research UK Boat Races will take place on March 27th 2016. The women will race at 3:10pm with the men an hour later at 4:10pm.
