This past weekend we hosted one of our favourite races of the season - our very own Head of Fyris! 

We welcomed rowers from Akademiska RF, Hammarby, Lidingö, and our friends in the south - Malmö. With 17 crews providing spectacular racing it was a great day on and off the water. 

Akademiska had the fastest boat - with one of their men's pairs finishing the course in 11:10.6 (and then getting stuck in the reeds in probably the most spectacular finish in HoF history). 

The Johanna Andersson's Trophy for the fastest coxed crew was won by the UARS mix 8+, coxed by Emma Andersson, in a time of 11:20.1

This was the inauagral year for the Initio SJK Cup, named after the fantastic Stephan Köhler, for coxed beginners boats. This cup was contested by four crews; an 8+ from UARS, a 4+ from UARS, a 4+ from Malmö, and a 2x+ from Malmö. 

Smashing the previous beginners course record of 15:36, our 4+ took home the victory in a time of 13:41, about a month after learning to row. 

Beginners 4+

Thank you to everyone who came and rowed, helped, and/or cheered. 

And a massive thank you to our fantastic sponsors; The Broker Coffee Roastery, Tehörnan Uppsala, and Laxens Sportpriser. 

The evening festivities went ahead in classic UARS style - filled with tradition and some shenanigans. We had a great time celebrating the day and celebrating UARS. And the rivalry with our friends in the south lives on....
