Captain's Word - November 2014
Itís a huge pleasure to be taking over the helm from Sam Lloyd as Caiusí Captain of Boats for this coming year. Iím not at all intimidated by not having a boathouse for this season Ė if anything, I look forward to keeping Caius the most formidable club on the Cam, boathouse or not. I came to Cambridge in October of 2012, and had the opportunity to travel to Basel with M1 to race the famous Basel Head. It was a tremendously fun experience. I chose to pursue CUWBC for that year, claiming the lightweight cox role for the 2013 boat race, and becoming close friends with many Caians in the program. I decided that 2013-2014 would be the year that I dedicated my time to Caius, where I coxed M1 periodically, spent much time coaching W1 (specifically in the Lents term) and went up three slots coxing W1 in the Mays. My biggest goal for this coming year is to continue the success of both the women and men's senior squads, and importantly, to build a very strong novice intake.

Caians in Blue Boats!
Cambridge University Women's Boat Club and Cambridge University Boat Club announced their blue boats today for the races against Oxford.
Congratulations to Caians Melissa Wilson, who will be sitting at 6 in the CUW BB, and Ivo Dawkins, who will be sitting at 3 in the CUBC BB! It's a huge achievement from them and we're looking forward to cheering them on come March 30th and April 6th. This will be Melissa's second boat race and Ivo's first.
What's particularly impressive is that both of them learned to row here at CBC - Melissa noviced in 2011 and Ivo noviced last year!
Stay tuned for the official announcements of (quite a few other) Caians in the lightweight and reserve boats! GTM.
