UH Head traditionally RUMSBC’s breadwinner. A race that we in the boat club are born to race and win. A club favourite that has been mired by set backs this year due to incredibly poor weather will actually be going ahead this Saturday.
Lets have a look who make up the crews.
The Women’s Squad
Training has been an uphill struggle, but never before has the world seen more determination to win that we have in our women’s squad. Rumour has it that they will be giving Sportsnight a miss this week what a sacrifice.
The 1st’s and UH Regatta Champions.
Alex W (cox), Jess Rankine, Alice Taylor-Bennett, Hannah Orrell, Eimear McKavanagh, Daisy Newberry, Mary Sisley, Libi Hawkes, Joy Schmidt
UH Head 2014 W1 Crew
Lets hope that the other UH crews enter the Women’s intermediate category this time!
Hannah Hickingbotham (Training Cox unfortunately isn’t allowed to compete this time), Tintin Larsson, Izzy Goldrick, Katie Westbrook, Laura Cousins, Steph Glavin, Alex Hastings, Livi Drewett, Georgie Lloyd.
UH Head 2014 W2 Crew
They had chosen a crew and a strong looking crew at that. The conditions have meant that they are not allowed to compete but hopefully they can make it down to support.
Kit Hunter (cox), Beth Welch, Phoebe Aubugeau-Williams, Kate Friedlaender, Caitlin Healy, Beth Hughes, Alex Scholey, Chowa Nkonde, Elizabeth Chamberlin-Keen
The Men’s Squad
The men’s crews really came together over training weekend last month, but a conveyor belt of crap weather has blocked their every attempt to train. But remember “the world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows” we’ve got to take the hits and get back up again because “that’s how winning is done!”

The Men’s 1sts (in no particular order because I can’t remember it)
Louis Robertson, John Hall, Alex Cowan, Will McCaughran, Will Doran, Neel Raja, Tom Duggan, Tom Morgan
UH Head 2014 M1 Crew
The Men’s 2nds
Maria Vakle (Training Cox), Alasdiar Williamson, Angus Dawson, Tom McLay, Adam Pickard, Jack Illingworth, Patrick Hanna, Charlie Hensher, Rory Shadwell.
UH Head 2014 M2 Crew
The Men’s Novice Squad
They tried, they gave it everything. They know who they are. Hopefully they can also be there with the novices to support. (Anyone got names?)
If you want to come down and support keep an eye on http://www.uhboatclub.co.uk/ and our twitter @rumsbc.
Finally lets end on this because it’s always good to end with a Rocky clip.
