It all ends in a draw after a big day at Loughborough
DUBC top the points table at BUCS 4s and 8s
(7 March 2015)
Last weekend, Durham University Boat Club secured the overall Victor Ludorum at the BUCS 4s and 8s Head event returning with an impressive haul of ten medals. The Palatinates finished top of the medal table in the women’s competition, with the Championship eight starting the weekend of success winning gold five seconds ahead of their nearest challengers. The intermediate eight ‘A’ crew also topped the podium after building an impressive lead of nearly nineteen seconds over UCL who crossed the line in second.
There were two further gold medals for the women’s Championship coxless four and the women’s lightweight coxless four who eased to victory over thirty seconds ahead of the rest of the field. The women’s Championship quadruple sculls also claimed medals, taking second spot behind Edinburgh University.
In the men’s competition, the Durham Intermediate coxed four finished in silver position behind Newcastle, while the Championship coxless four boat also picked up second place. There were also bronze medals for the lightweight coxless four, who were narrowly pipped on the line by Imperial, and for the Championship eight and the lightweight quadruple sculls crews.
Attention for DUBC now turns to the Head of the River Race and the Women’s Head of the River Race taking place on River Thames on the 29th and 14th March, respectively.
