Newcastle University has retained the overall title of the Boat Race of the North for yet another year since its resurgence in 2015.
This year’s event was the same weekend as the European Rugby finals and as such, the Quayside was packed for the racing.
Newcastle University proceeded to sweep Durham University in all six races and put on a fine display for the home support.
A huge thank you must go to NE1 for their support of the event and to Siemens, the title sponsor.
The Boat Race of the North will return in 2020
