WeHoRR Success for City Women

City women proved their prowess once again by returning from the Thames with a fantastic set of results.

The first boat ladies finished 25th overall out of almost 300 entrants, improving on last year's impressive result and demonstrating that women's rowing at City is going from strength to strength.

Our second boat came in 81st, making City the only Cambridge club apart from Cambridge University Women's Boat Club to have 2 boats in the top 100. .

City had four crews entered and all four improved on their previous results. W3 finished 181st and W4 246th. A great day for the club and all those who put in the time and effort to make it possible.

Jess’ managed to get 3 eights worth of rowers across London without losing anyone (how, given the lack of a pink helium dolphin for us all to follow, remains a mystery), and on arrival we discovered that Gripper and W1 had bagged a prime place for us all to rig. All we had to do was stick our boat together (Easy. W2 always remember to check their nuts.
