BUCS Regatta 2016

The Kingston University rowers attended the BUCS Rowing Championships in Nottingham over the bank holiday weekend. This is the largest regatta in Europe and attracts a huge entry from across the UK making most of the events really competitive - for example the men's beginner 4+ had 77 crews entered. Racing was in the format of a time trial followed by regatta racing in semis and finals. Events are offered in championship, intermediate and beginner categories. Nottingham produced its normal weather conditions with a nasty cross head wind over most of the regatta, leading to some of the minor finals being cancelled and some very testing conditions.

We produced a really good set of results with each squad reaching the same or higher finals compared to last year.

From the senior men, our Championship 4- of James Marsden, Hal Bedford-Payne, Rich Sharratt and Jonty Webber came 6th in the A final in an extremely competitive event. This was a great performance and our highest placed crew at the regatta. Alex Rachwel came 3rd in the B final of the Men's Beginner 1x displaying no fear in sculling over nasty waves to produce the highest placed beginner result we have had in a long time.

The beginner girls 4+ of Ulana Fries, Lene Pettersen, Amelia Reeves, Emma Bleasdale and Liv Edwards came 4th in the B final from 63 crews which is the highest result compared to number of crews entered in an event for our crews. Our intermediate women made the C final in the 2x which was then cancelled due to conditions. Last year our top intermediate crew made the D final so this is a good improvement.
