Love those Hudsons! Great boat for a great university. Wishing the club all the best for 2021, and maybe see you over at the Head of the Charles one day.

New boat !!! Yeh boy !

Good luck with the new boat

As I noted on the support form.... I picked up the very first 4 that BUBC ever owned (coxless 4, clinker built, a training boat), as a used boat from Aberystwyth University and transported it on the roof of my Morris 1000 van through the Welsh Mountains to Bath. That's a pretty windy road and it hung out a long way front and rear! That must have been in 1967. We spent a lot of hours in that boat at the crack of dawn on the Avon with Rod Cousens at bow, a number of different people rowing 2, me at 3 and Roger Ellmore at stroke. Happy days.

Prices have gone up a bit since my day. I think the Jolly Roger (Janousek 4+ in 1989) cost under £5k.

Well done John & BUBC! I hope we get there! CB / Sanchez
