BRICs 2015

On the 12th of December, six members of CCBC travelled to the Lee Valley VeloPark in London’s Olympic Park to compete at the British Rowing Indoor Championships (BRICs). Slightly nervous to be competing at such a large event, but quietly confident, the whole squad was ready to give a great performance to end a successful […]

Fairbairns 2015

NW1 Keen to end this term’s utter domination on a high, NW1 showed up to Fairbairns keen to put all their hard work into practice. Despite harry being unable to show his face in the bright light of day, he managed to get them safely down to Jesus lock, where we made sure to give […]

Emma Sprints

NW1 Continuing on from the success of Queen’s Ergs, NW1 were keen to prove themselves on the water. Dressed up as Pacman (cox) being chased by his ghosts, they descended up the river to marshal. Their first race was against Newnham NW2, who they left at the start line after one stroke. Described by CamFm […]

Winter Head

W1 Boat breakages and last minute crew changes due to injury meant that our preparations for this race were less than ideal. Despite this we went into the first race of the year determined to make the most of it. We wound up before the motorway bridge and settled into a strong rhythm at rate […]

Queens’ Ergs 2015

NM1 A respectable 12th place from Churchill NM1 at Quergs 2015, with an impressive 1:25.7 from one novice.

In the heats the […]

End of Year Report 2015

The crews managed to earn 4 sets of blades this year, without a single crew getting bumped once this year. M1 have just returned […]

Mays 2015 : Day 3

An interesting day all round or Churchill crews. A few rowovers meant for a few disappointed Churchill faces, but really that goes to highlight just how much Churchill’s fortunes have turned around even just over the 4 years I’ve been here (my first year we were pretty chuffed by only going down 3). However, Churchill […]

Mays 2015 : Day 2

  Another fantastic day of bumps for Churchill has left us sitting at the top of the Pegasus cup charts 2 days in (though still a long way to go yet!). Yesterday was a beautiful day at the river, and we are all looking forward to another strong day of racing today. Race reports below. […]
