BUCS 4s & 8s Head - 25/26 February 2023

BUCS 4s & 8s Head - 26/27 February 2022 - report
BUCS 4s & 8s Head ran in 2022 after cancellation in 2021 due to Covid. Conditions were good on the Saturday and and a bit breezy for the novices on the Sunday. Results are at www.bucs.org.uk/events-page/bucs-rowing-4s-8s-head.html?tab=Results.
BUCS 4s & 8s Head - in 2020 - report
The premier winter student rowing competition came to the Tyne on Sunday 23 February 2020. 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! Division 1 had gone well in the morning, but wind and waves appeared over lunchtime.
Crews at start of Division 2 on 23-02-20
Crews bunched up waiting for Division 2 of the BUCS Head, at Scotswood Bridge

The Division 2 start was brought upstream a bit to avoid choppy water for marshalling at Derwenthaugh, but otherwise went as planned, although very hard work for the crews against a strong west wind. Just one boat did not finish (or even start) due to getting a rigger entangled in 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.
