The sun’s out, and Oxford’s principal rowing regatta, Summer Eights, is upon us. From the 25th to the 28th May (Oxford 5th Week), the Isis will play host to a great celebration of sport and summer.
We hope you will come and join us!
Looking smart in the eight they christened last year, the ‘Oliver Starkey’, Somerville’s W1 starts this year in a strong if arduous position, as sandwich boat at the bottom of the First Division. M1 meanwhile starts at 7 in the Third Division, with the ability to make serious progress towards promotion next year.
At rowing on today, both W2 and M2 qualified with good times (M2 just over the three minute mark, and W2 a little over three and a half).
Look out for details of race times and and results here on the website and on Facebook. You can get live commentary on the racing by following the OURCs Twitter account.
