Sydney University continued their domination of the mixed eights and mixed fours winning both events (the eights by around two lengths plus).
A significant moment at this regatta was the final appearance of Alice McNamara for Melbourne University. This regatta was Alice’s tenth year representing Melbourne and she dominated in lightweight events winning the single and the quad scull. Our men’s team won the point score and retained the Bill Webb Trophy and our women’s team finished second to Melbourne with Melbourne being the overall points score winners for 2015. The men’s eight (Crew: Cox Will Raven, Stroke Andrew Judge, Jake Bicknell, Campbell Watts, Alex Purnell, Tom Whitehead, Tobi Wehr-Candler, Angus Robinson, Jack Cook. Coaches: Tom Sacre, Mark Prater) retained the Oxford and Cambridge Cup with an eleven second victory. This made it three wins in a row and seven wins in the last twelve years in this event and moves SUBC to within three wins of Melbourne as the 118th race was concluded. Next year rowing will be part of the Australian University Games in Perth with the rowing competition taking place at Champion Lakes.
