Cambridge Ladies Take Bronze at BUSA Nationals – February 2018

Cambridge Ladies put up a great performance to take the Bronze Medal for Universities at the RYA/BUSA Ladies Team Racing Nationals held at Lochore Meadows Country Park, Kirkcaldy on 24/25th February 2018. Congratulations to all the team!

Oxford put up a very polished performance to defeat their arch-enemies and winners of last year, Royal Northern and Clyde YC, so taking Gold for the National as well as the Universities event. Well done Oxford! Exeter finished just behind the Bronze-winning BUSA team, 4th overall and 2nd University, followed by Cambridge Ladies, 5th overall and 3rd University – with Edinburgh 6th overall and 4th University.

Winds were generally good for the event, though somewhat light on the Sunday morning, and all 17 teams competing enjoyed a great weekend of racing as well as a very full social programme. A big thank you to Glasgow and Strathclyde for their excellent organisation of the event.
