Crews from the Oxford and Cambridge University Men’s and Women’s Boat Race squads will all take to the water on Saturday to race against each other for the first time on the Tideway this season.
The crews are racing in the annual Fuller’s Head of the River Fours, and is the first opportunity to see how the four 2012-13 squads cope with the unique Tideway conditions.
Both the Dark and Light Blue Men’s squads will have 5 crews racing. In the Women’s competition, 5 crews from Cambridge will compete and 2 will compete from Oxford. The Race is run in the opposite direction to The Boat Race, starting at Mortlake and finishing in Putney.
For Oxford, Alex Woods, Will Zeng, Karl Hudspith and President Alex Davidson all return from the 2012 Blue Boat and are joined by 2011 Blue Constantine Louloudis, fresh from Olympic success in the GB Men’s Eight. Returning for Light Blues from the 2012 Race are Alexander Scharp, Steve Dudek, Niles Garratt, Mike Thorp, Alex Ross, Jack Lindeman and cox Ed Bosson. They have been rejoined by Olympic Bronze medallist and 2010 and 2011 Blue, President George Nash.
Both the OUWBC and CUWBC crews feature returning Blues from The 2012 Newton Women’s Boat Race. For Oxford, their two are Mary Foord-Weston and Annika Malin Bruger. Returning to race in the CUWBC fours are three 2012 Blues: Fay Sandford, Holly Game and Caroline Reid.
