BUCS 4s & 8s Head - 24/25 February 2024
Report from 2024

Just past and the student participants had a great time in beatiful conditions. We hope this persuades them to return in 2025. Fuller report shortly, but stop press is that Newcastle University surged back this year to win the overall Victor Ludorum, after losing out to Durham University in 2023.

Report from 2023
We enjoyed looking after 12 university and college boat clubs on our side of the river for the 2023 event. It got a bit windy and wavy for the first division on the Saturday (a couple of swampings) but calmed down for the afternoon and for the beginners on Sunday. Durham University BC swept the board in overall, open and and women's categories - well done! The BUCS Head web page is here for full details and results.

Report from 2022
BUCS 4s & 8s Head ran in 2022 on 26/27 February, 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
Report from 2020
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.
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. Newcastle University BC turned up trumps and won both Women's and Men's Victor Ludorum prizes.
