Once again Duncan was on-board the press launch on Tue 9 and Wed 10 December, shooting both the the Women’s and Men’s Trial VIIIs. This is when both Oxford and Cambridge send out two evenly-matched crews from their own club to race against each other. This helps the coaches to assess individual performance and select those who will be chosen for the Blue crews.
It was bitterly cold on the press launch, especially on Tuesday. On the Wednesday, the sun at least shone, which resulted in much better images. Galleries of photos from both days can be seen here .
