Word From The Captain

It's been a great year for the THBC with much grit, determination and commitment shown by all of our members. In the May Bumps the second women were awarded blades, with the first women going up two to help cement their position in the first division. The men suffered a worse fate, though as the race reports will tell you, not everything is told in the final bumps tally.
Looking back at the year as a whole, the club has had a lot of success - we won three out of the four events entered at Huntingdon Head of the River in Michaelmas term and pushed through into the semi-finals of University IVs (something we hope to better next year!). The first women won at Peterborough Head of the Nene and put in a great time at the Women's Head of the River Race in Lent term. Our lower boats have come on in leaps and bounds and show real promise, testament to the great deal of hard work that has gone in from them and their coaches. The club shows great strength and depth, and I am sure that we will do well next year.
It has been a great pleasure to captain the THBC this year, and I am leaving it in the very capable hands of Bronagh Murphy (Overall Captain) and Ben Goodwill (Men's Captain). If you are hoping to join Trinity Hall for next year and are interested in rowing, please let us know through the Contacts page - whether you're an experienced oarsman or you've never seen a boat before, we'd love to hear from you!
