Cambridge University Lightweight Rowing Club 2013-14 Invitations are open to rowers and coxes who wish to trial for the Cambridge University Lightweight Rowing Club for the 2013-4 season. The primary aim of the Club is to defeat Oxford in the Lightweight Boat Race in March each year. Since it started in 1975, the race has taken place in Henley-on-Thames over 2000m. The race is open to crews from each University with an average weight of the crew is 70kg or less, and an individual maximum of 72.5kg. Cambridge has won 3 out of the last 5 races.

BR 2013 On a cold and rather blustery day at Dorney lake (moved from Henley on Thames due to the weather) the 2013 blue boat, stroked by Will Kenyon, got off to a good start. Unfortunately the crew didn't manage to find a good rhythm into the wind and Oxford's lower rating gave them a 3/4L advantage by the 500m mark. CULRC then pushed on through the middle of the race to hold the dark blues in check, but coming into the last 500m OULRC broke clear to take the win by 1 2/3L.

Winter Head 2012 - 1 Cambridge Winter Head was the first opportunity for the 2013 trialists to get some race experience under their belts. Split into four crews (an eight, quad, coxed and coxless four) they raced against a wide variety of competition over a 2500m course to a great deal of success.

This weekend was a busy weekend for CULRC, with Rupert Price competing at the World Under-23 Championships and also several athletes at the British Championships. Rupert's quad reached the B final for the lightweight mens quad sculls earlier in the week, and on Saturday they raced to third place in that final. Congratulations to Rupert on his achievement and we hope he will be able to build on this next year. Meanwhile in Nottingham (see main article)... NatChamps1xCropped
