Sidney's W1 crew have won blades, after bumping Anglia Ruskin, Robinson, Jesus II and Emmanuel II. The crew, coxed by Aimée Muirhead, were tipped for a strong performance and did not disappoint the many Sidney supporters on the river. Their achievement leaves W1 in fourth place in the second division.

There was also success for W2, who enjoyed one row-over and three consecutive bumps, leaving them top of the fourth division.

The men's first crew bumped Darwin and Anglia Ruskin, before two row-overs on Friday and Saturday. M2 went down two places, one following a problem with their boat, but there was better news for M3, who moved up three places in the men's fifth division. M4 endured four tough row-overs.
