ROWING-BUSA Head of River 05/03/2003

Honours were well spread around at the Inuagural BUSA Oarsport Head in Nottingham on Sunday May 2.

Twenty Universities featured in the 86 boat entry with Imperial College and Cambridge taking top billing in the Mens Championship Events and Durham and Nottingham sharing the Womens Championship Events.

Southampton Institute pulled off a one second victory in Womens Novice Eights, whilst coastal-based Portsmouth University raced their staggered-seat coastal cutter against river-boats in the Mens Trophy fours event, much to the delight of the watching spectators.

The head, aimed at attracting the wide-spread of University rowing abilities, certainly achieved its aim, with GB Internationals and Beginner Freshers racing over the smae course... just not at the same speed!

The next BUSA rowing event, again supported by Concept2 and Oarsportwill the BUSA Regatta at Holme Pierrepont on May 3 & 4 2003.
