The UEABC Senior Women currently consist of around 15 dedicated athletes. Under the watchful eye of Women’s coach Martin Tate, the squad focus on developing their skills with both sculling and sweeping. Using the same facilities as the Men’s Squad, the Women train 8 times a week, putting in the miles on the water and on the ergo. The squads top crew, the W4+, recently acquired a brand new 2018 Filippi. Putting this to good use the crew improved on last years result at BUCS Regatta, securing an E Final finish in the 4+.
Working closely with new coach Martin, the squad looks to develop its athletes over the next two seasons to see how much improvement can be made.

The Novice Women work very hard to turn up in force on race day. Focusing on the 8+ and the 4+, the squad have competed at numerous head races and summer regattas throughout the season. Similar to the Senior Women, the squad improved on the previous years results at BUCS Regatta, with an incredible race to the finish line to steal second place in the 8+.
