A particular highlight of the season saw a female pair finish third at the World Championships in France in August, and the men’s four-man crew narrowly missed out on medals when they finished fourth in their event. Both crews gained qualification for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
Four other UP-Tuks rowers also finished in the top eight positions of their events, seeing all of them secure Olympic qualification too.
TuksRowing cox Jason Hunter commented on the club’s aspirations for the year ahead, saying: “Looking at the year ahead, we want to get the club numbers up and put more boats of a higher quality on the water, both for training and racing, with the [ultimate] goal of bringing home gold from all [the] regattas that we compete in. For both A and B divisions we have one goal: gold.”
