Episode 8: Tideway Boat Race Fixtures
The Cambridge Blue Boat had their official Boat Race fixture against the University of London. This involved two side by side pieces on The Boat Race course, The Championship Course.
The Blondie crew, the Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club reserve crew, then raced their fixture against Imperial College novice men, with a similar story as the Blue boat. There were some tough fights, but in the end, the light blues came out on top.
We’ve also recently been working with our sports psychology team Helen and Kate who’ve helped us to understand how our teammates think and operate, particularly when under pressure on race day.
The race is coming up fast on March 24, and there is still so much we need to pack into the last three weeks of preparation.
