After a very windy Saturday with added heavy showers in the afternoon this years Heads of the River were……drum roll…….
In the men’s Gonville & Caius regained top spot after Downing had taken the lead overnight and in the women’s it was the fast rising Clare crew who topped the division with Downing in second place. At one stage a Downing double was on and my friend John, a Downing allumni, was devastated with the 2 second places!!
Following tradition the Heads of the River burn a wooden boat (old that is) in their college grounds.
Next up on the river will be the Town Bumps in a few weeks time.
