Tomorrow Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club will have their second fixture in preparation for The 2015 Newton Women’s Boat Race.
In their first fixture, CUWBC took on Newcastle University Boat Club winning all three pieces – they will hope to continue this run against Imperial College Boat Club. With Imperial on home water, it looks to be another stern test ahead of April 11th.
Cambridge will feature 3 returning Blues, including President Caroline Reid in the 3 seat. Rosemary Ostfeld, who coxed Goldie for the CUBC last year, will be looking to utilise her Tideway experience to guide the Light Blues to another fixture victory.
The crews will race from The Boat Race Start at 1:30pm, with the first piece finishing at Hammersmith Bridge. The second piece will be from the Milepost to Chiswick Steps.
The line-up for the CUWBC is as follows:
b) Hannah Evans
2) Ashton Brown
3) Caroline Reid*
4) Claire Watkins*
5) Melissa Wilson*
6) Holly Hill
7) Hannah Roberts
8) Fanny Belais
Cox) Rosemary Ostfeld
