Varsity 2015

Freestyle

Last weekend we had our annual Varsity competition against Oxford University Canoe and Kayak Club. Sadly it was an overall loss for Cambridge. However, every event was closely fought so a massive congratulations to everyone that took part. We did manage to triumph over the dark blues in some events with both the Men's Polo and Men's Freestyle teams recording wins. Final congratulations go to individuals who got top 3 finishes - Shahid Wahab for 2nd in Freestyle and to Alex Ross for 3rd in both Freestyle and Marathon. A full report will be written up soon.

White Water Safety And Rescue Training

Towards the end of March I headed up to North Wales along with Witty, Michael G, Martin and Forbes, to spend a weekend doing our Whitewater Safety and Rescue Training. The weekend promised to be a cold and wet one, but not without its' fun. We spent the first day above 'The Chipper' on the Tryweryn, practicing our rescue of swimmers using reaching and throwing aids as well as some live bait rescues, involving leaping into the water to rescue a swimmer whilst tethered to your partner by a rope.
