NUBC were incredibly grateful to be hosting the first BUCS Head since 2020 again at the water sports centre in Newburn.

The event spanned over the weekend, with Saturday seeing the Senior Fours and Eights racing, and the Sunday being dedicated to Novices (those who have learnt to row this season).

We fielded 21 boats on Saturday between the men’s and women’s squad,
and after a successful day - blessed by the sunshine - ended up finishing the
day leading in the Men, Women’s and overall Victor Ludorum.

Although we didn’t have enough Novices for the Sunday racing (meaning
they were thrown into the deep end racing on Saturday with the seniors), we still managed to just hold onto the Men’s and Overall Victor Ludorum,
retaining it from our win in 2020, unfortunately only just losing out on retaining the Women’s.

A huge thanks to all the Marshalls and Umpires from British Rowing and
BUCS, and everyone who volunteered this weekend, to ensure the event ran
smoothly, with a special thanks to Tyne Amateur and Tyne United for hosting and feeding us all this weekend! Next stop for NUBC is WeHORR.
