Success at the 2017 UBBC Head

The University of Bristol Boat Club once again hosted a successful Head Race, with both UBBC and Nonesuch coming away as the fastest crews in every eights category. 

UBBC's Men's 1st 8 took the headship by 28 seconds, overtaking Avon neighbours Bath University approaching the final straight. UBBC's Women's 1st 8 affirmed their continuing dominance of the Women's Championship 8s event, taking the win for the third year running. 

UBBC displayed the depth in both Men's and Women's squads, also claiming victories in the Men's and Women's Intermediate Eights events. 

Nonesuch Boat Club fielded 3 eights; 2 men's and 1 women's, containing plenty of new faces to Nonesuch. The top men's eight and the women's eight both beat their counterparts from Coldharbour Boat Club (UWEBC Alumni), coming away as the fastest Alumni crews at the event. 

Following the day of racing, UBBC hosted the annual Head Race Ball at Ashton Court Mansion, where as per tradition pudding was eaten with no hands, followed shortly after by the pilgrimage to Lizard Lounge. 

The UBBC Alumni pass on our congratulations to Head Coach Cameron Kennedy and the whole of UBBC for a hugely successful weekend.
