BUCS 4s & 8s Head - 24/25 February 2018
Click for BUCS event web page
British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) comes to Newcastle and Gateshead again this year. This is the third time the home clubs (Tyne ARC, Tyne United RC and Newcastle University RC) have hosted the students' biggest winter rowing event, the BUCS 4s & 8s Head. The top university crews are amongst the best overall in the UK, so some spectacular racing is guaranteed.

On Saturday 24 February the beginner crews row over 3000 metres from Blaydon Station to Newburn. On Sunday 25 February intermediate and championship crews race over 5000 metres from Scotswood to Newburn. Weather allowing, the finish is upstream of the rowing clubs at Newburn, so the clubhouses all provide good vantage points on the day.
