White Water Trip - Lent term 2018 - HPP

Saturday 17th February saw a convoy of cars containing 19 keen paddlers setting off from the club sheds, for what must surely be one of CUCC’s largest trips to HPP whitewater course (Nottingham). There was a mix of whitewater beginners, a polo player, freestylers, river runners and even a photographer (Dan armed with his gopro-on-a-stick) and a dedicated mostly-bank-based coach (Shahid, sparing his shoulders).

Div 3 Polo Competition - February 18

Having trained tirelessly through the cold, the rain and the snow, CUCC approached their first tournament of 2018 with confidence. The latest edition of the regional Division 3 tournament saw Cambridge making the quick trip to Stevenage to play four games against local rivals, including club sides Castle and Nomads, as well as university teams from London (combined colleges) and Surrey.

Teesdale Trip 2017

Friday 24th November saw 11 keen whitewater paddlers and one polo player from CUCC journey northwards, and after long van, car and train trips eventually assemble in a bunkhouse in Teesdale. The previous week had been promisingly rainy but constant monitoring of Rain Chasers revealed that the high levels hadn’t held. The Tees was running though, so there was plenty of kayaking to be done!
