The 20th April 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of the formation of City of Cambridge Rowing Club, the oldest town club on the Cam. Thank you to everyone who made the occasion such a great success. Here's to a historic year to come, and many more to follow.

Junior racing in March

CCRC Juniors - Racing in March

Charlotte's report 

As the City juniors don't like the easy option, March provided the opportunity to continue the trend of February and race lots and lots in as many different places, boats and combinations as possible.

The month started with Champs Junior Sculling Head, rowing on home water in a race as different to the Winter League as possible by being a) "really not very long" at 1,450m and b) sunny.



Novices win Winter League

City Men Win Winter League Novice 8's

On the morning of the Third Winter League Leg, City Novice A crew knew they had a six seconds lead on X-Press Legends. The first leg had been slightly disappointing after we fell apart through lack of fitness after the Railway Bridge. Our coach Ben Duckworth called for 5K erg sessions leading up to the final leg and which happened to coincide with the river freezing over, so more land training it was. Dividends quickly paid off in the second leg where we marginally improved our time while the three novice boats (Legends, Rad M1 and Chesterton) that had beaten us in the first leg fell off by around 30 seconds each.
