Rowing – Lightweights lose out

2 October 2009

The lightweights competed in the Temple Challenge Cup and the Visitors’ Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. In the first they went out in the first round, losing by 2/3 of a length to Queen’s University, who equalled the Barrier record. In the second they went out to Oxford after a clash of oars. Oxford, who went on to win the event, escaped disqualification for their role in the clash after Cambridge failed to use the proper appeals procedure.
