STAGING Showdown looms for Aberdeen universities - British Rowing

Showdown looms for Aberdeen universities


Aberdeen University and Robert Gordon University will go head to head on Saturday 10 March, for the 17th annual Aberdeen Asset Management Universities’ Boat Race trophy.

The fierce varsity rivals are set to contest a challenging 3.5km course along the River Dee, in Scotland’s longest-running boat race.


Crews consist of four male and four female rowers along with a cox, and is the pinnacle of each club’s calendar.

In 2011, Aberdeen University claimed their 14th victory out of 16 races, with Robert Gordon’s last victory coming in 2009.
