Champs Junior Sculling Head

Cambridge Champs Junior Sculling Head 15th March 2020


The organising committee are sorry to have to announce that CCJSH 2020 has been cancelled due to forecast winds in excess of 35mph combined with a stronger than normal stream on the Cam. Our number one priority is the safety of competitors and we felt that the conditions compromised this.

We will endeavour to run the race in 2021 – we hope that you will join us.

DIVISIONS Div 1: 10:30 | Div 2: 12:15 | Div 3: 14:00.

There will be sufficient time between divisions to allow crews to double-up, and will permit boat sharing across divisions.
