For the fifth time in a row, Rotterdam student rowing association Skadi has won the Varsity, the national university rowing competition. De Maastricht rowers from Saurus were knocked out in the preliminary rounds, where they ended in fifth place. “We crashed into another boat at the start,” says competition official Ronald Nijenhuis from Saurus. “There was just so much wind; it happens sometimes. In such a case, there is a restart. After that we had a great race, but around the 1,000 meters (the full distance being 2 kilometres, ed.), we were overtaken.” Saurus finished with a time of 7.32 minutes.
