Three gold medals were won by Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club at the British Universities & Colleges Sport Regatta.

The Light Blues had 13 openweight and lightweight crews in action in Nottingham across the championship and intermediate classes.

Pippa Whittaker and Tricia Smith won the championship coxless pair, Catherine King and Gemma King were victorious in the championship lightweight pair and Lily Lindsay, Adriana Perez Rotondo, Larkin Sayre and Kate Horvat were first in the championship coxless four.

There were also silver medals for CUWBC in the championship lightweight eight with a crew of Flo Alexander, Louise Brett, Gemma King, Catherine King, Lata Casson, Catherine Walker, Victoria Walker, Laura Stewart and cox Dylan Whittaker; the championship lightweight coxless four of Alexander, Catherine Walker, Victoria Walker and Brett; and Whittaker in the championship scull.

Chief coach Robert Weber said: "I'm extremely proud of our athletes especially in how they were able to switch gears so quickly and seamlessly on the heels of the Boat Races.

"Some of these crews had only managed one or two (or even no) sessions together before racing."

He added: “In addition, our Development Squad crews got some valuable racing experience, with the WInt4+ winning a hard earned spot in the A Final. We look forward to welcoming many of these athletes trialling with us in September.”

Cambridge University Boat Club saw some of their Goldie athletes win the intermediate coxed four.
