Downing College looks forward to this weekend's University Boat Races, as four crews take to the demanding Tideway course.

On Sunday 2 April, Downing's Holly Hill and Théa Zabell will be representing Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club (CUWBC) as they compete against Oxford in the 2017 Cancer Research UK Boat Races.  Holly will be in the Blue Boat, while Théa will be racing in the Blondie crew.

In the Women’s Boat Race, Cambridge has won forty-one races to Oxford’s thirty. The CUWBC Blue Boat crew contains British, Irish, New Zealand, French and Canadian/Australian rowers and represents 7 of the University of Cambridge’s Colleges.

Last Sunday, 26 March 2017, we were delighted that Downing's own Isobel Edwards was in the winning CUWBC crew of the 2017 Lightweight Women's Boat Race at Henley.  We wish Holly, Théa and the rest of the CUWBC squad equal success this weekend.  Go Light Blues!

See the CUWBC website for more information.
