Welcome to Tyne ARC

BUCS 4s & 8s Head - Sunday ran but gusty at times
The premier winter student rowing competition came to the Tyne on Sunday 23 February. It should have run on Saturday, the day before, as well but an adverse weather forecast intervened. So the top crews were moved from Sat to Sun and the beginners got the chop! Conditions on Sunday were still pretty tricky, especially in the afternoon, but wind and waves did not defeat the crews and they battled on. Division 1 went as planned in pretty calm conditions.

A rather crowded start marshalling area in Div 2 at Scotswood - click for larger version

But Division 2 turned a bit rough and the start was brought upstream a bit to avoid choppy water for marshalling at Derwenthaugh. Apart from this it ran as planned - but it was hard work for the crews rowing back to Newburn against a strong west wind. Just one boat did not finish (or start) due to getting a rigger entangled with a post near the shore and being swamped during the attempted rescue. Newcastle University BC turned up trumps and won both Women's and Men's Victor Ludorum prizes.
