St Radegund Cup delight for City rowers

City of Cambridge Rowing Club won the St Radegund Cup on the River Cam.  The annual Radegund Mile Race is for four and eight-oared boats, with the 39 crews split into two divisions.  City of Cambridge’s Masters B 8+, 8@8, won the cup for the men’s fastest crew with an adjusted time of 5min 36sec.  And the winner of the shield for the fastest women’s crew was Newnham College’s Division Two May Bumps crew Lady G.

A unique aspect of the Radegund Mile is that all crews are invited to predict their time over the course, and this year a Cantabrigian Rowing Club Men’s 4+, InVeterEight, won the prize, being only two seconds slower than their prediction.
