Another year has started at Cambridge with great recruiting activity and 65 people participating in the Taster Weekend. As always, a report and photographs are on the website. A week earlier, a Cambridge Early 00s team won the O&CSS Generations Event and the current Cambridge team came 3rd, well ahead of Oxford - see the O&CSS website for full details. And, while not wanting to brag about such things, we note that there were 3 CUCrC sailors competing in the recent Endeavour Trophy, with Nick Craig coming 2nd, Roger Gilbert 4th, and Luke and Emma McEwen 17th out of 25 entrants - congratulations all!
Tuesday 14 June saw the largest invasion yet of Grafham by Cambridge sailors and windsurfers for the annual May Week Cuppers competitions. Some 70 dinghy sailors took part in team racing Cuppers and 15 windsurfers contested their Cuppers. Robinson won the team racing and Sidney Sussex claimed victory in the windsurfing event. A full report and some photographs are on this website.
