Crustaceans M3, comprising Blades from m1985 to m1964, finished in 18:17.3, beating Jesus III and Sidney Sussex II in excellent style. Crustaceans M2 (m1978) 16:42, beat Christ's M2 and M3 and finished 46th out of 62 crews.

We are delighted to announce that the College Council has agreed to provide £350,000 of matching funding, pound for pound, for new pledges to the boathouse redevelopment made after 1st august 2014. When reached, the combined total of £700,000 in additional funds should enable us to start work on Phase One, which is the largest phase of the project. The College Council has reaffirmed its support for the redevelopment and its appreciation of all the work that the steering committee has done to get the project this far.
