BUCS Head in 2021
It has been confirmed that the BUCS 4s & 8s Head is planned to take place on the Tyne in 2021, but Covid-19 might intervene. More news when we have it.
BUCS Head - 22/23 February 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! Conditions on Sunday were till 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.
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 Div 2 start was brought upstream a bit to avoid choppy water for marshalling at Derenthaugh, but otherwise went as planned - but hard work for the crews against a strong west wind. Just one boat did not finish (or start) due to getting entangled with a post near the shore in a rigger and being swamped during the attempted rescue. Newcastle University BC turned up trumps and won both Women's and Men's Victor Ludorum prizes.

Results by crew are at https://bucsrowing.org.uk/head20.
