City Women Dominate VIIIs events at Head of the Cam

On Saturday 22 April the womens squad fielded 3 VIIIs in the Head of the Cam, a race over 2,600m from the A14 bridge to just before the Green Dragon. The full depth of the womens squad was represented with everything from ex-Blues to our recent Learn to row graduates.

The top womens VIII of Kate Hurst, Katy Levitt, Samantha Deacon, Sarah Airey, Zara Goozee, Susie Valen, Aubree Wisley, Fran Axe and Jess Upton (cox) were the fastest womens VIII of the day completing the course in 9mins 52 seconds - one of the fastest times recorded for a womens VIII in recent history.
