Cambridge Blue, for the 5th year in succession, reached the final of the BUSA Team Racing Championships held 2-4 April 2018 at Strathclyde Loch, Glasgow. There, for the second year in succession, they finished Silver Medallists – this year to winners Southampton Green. Cambridge Black reached the quarter finals, the only 2nd university team to do so, losing out there to the smooth-running Southampton Green outfit.
Cambridge Purple started out well, being in the top 10 at the end of the first day, but had a less happy ending – finishing 28th out of the 32 finals qualifiers. (But Southampton was the only other University to field three teams that qualified for the finals!) Congratulations to all the teams on a fine performance, and to Glasgow for organising a great, if cold, BUSA.
