Teddy Hall Breeze to Cuppers Sailing Success

Sailing across the University has blossomed over the last few months, with the Oxford 1st team coming second over the Easter vacation in the BUSA team racing finals, and last Saturday and impressive number took part in the inter college cuppers competition. Nine teams entered from a total of seven colleges (Catz and New entering 2 teams) giving a total of 36 competitors of all abilities. A breeze that picked up during the morning was responsible for several capsizes but did help to produce some exciting racing. A rapid succession of races were at first dominated by teams with OU squad members, but soon other teams found their sea legs to put in some credible performances. In the semis Teddy Hall met Lincoln in a reincarnation of last years final, and Pembroke took on Queens. After being finalists for the last four years but only managing to win once, in 2000, this was to be Teddy Hall’s year, and having defeated Lincoln in the semi-final went on to beat Pembroke in the final in a best of 3 races showdown. All in all, Teddy Hall were deserving winners but with sailing at all levels of the University alive and kicking, they’ll have to fight to keep the cup next year.
