Cambridge Blue Triumph at the 2016 Top Gun Trophy

By March 18, 2016News

Cambridge University took the trophy after seeing off a strong challenge from Cardiff all weekend.
The Moet & Chandon Oxford University Invitational Trophy, the Top Gun, involved eight of the best University teams from around the country. Thanks to favourable conditions and great support from OUYC volunteers three full round robins were completed over the two days, with semi-finals and a nail biting four race final to finish.


Results were incredibly close after two round robins on the first day, with both Cambridge Blue and Cardiff tied on 11 out of 14 wins, then four chasing teams within two wins of one another. A strong Sunday for Cambridge saw them pull ahead in time for the semis, with Cardiff Exeter and Loughborough completing the line-up.
The Saturday evening saw the OUYC annual dinner, held this year at the Cherwell Boathouse. The event was a great success and it was lovely to bring together both sides of the club along with many old members and other University teams.
OUYC would like to thank all the Umpires and on the water helpers whose dedication and hard work allowed the three rounds to get finished in time for a full set of semis and finals.
