European University Rowing Regatta

News from BUCS: 

A squad of almost 120 people from 18 different Universities are on their way to Kruszwica in Poland to represent British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) at the 5th European Universities Sports Association (EUSA) regatta.

The 3 day event will take place on Goplo Lake from next Thursday, 3rd September with the finals on Saturday 5th.

The EUSA Championships allow the athletes to compete within their University crews and represent their University – but at the same, gain the experience of being part of a national team. Universities being represented are widely spread, coming from Aberdeen, Cardiff, Swansea, and Queens University, Belfast.

The crews were selected based on the results of Championship events at BUCS Regatta in May. The team was put together by a selection panel consisting coaches and students from various University Rowing Clubs. The target of the panel was to create a team "of the size and quality to challenge for the Victor Ludorum". The prestigious EUSA Rowing Salver is presented the the most successful nation at the regatta. In 2008, GBR came away 4th in the table having won the Salver for the previous 3 years.
