Gryphons Take Gold at BUCS Regatta

On the 29th of April, the University of Leeds Boat Club headed to the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham for the annual British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Regatta. The Gryphons were out in full force turning out 14 boats across all 4 of their squads.

To prepare for the weekend, the squads headed over to Lake Vyrnwy in Wales over the Easter break for a training camp. This paid off in particular in the Novice Women’s Single Sculls for Tara, who claimed 1st place and a BUCS gold medal!
