Universities of Aberdeen Boat Race - March 2006
The Race had been organised for 4th March 2006 but the river
was frozen on that day. Undaunted, the intrepid AU and RGU alumni crews
held a 'Winter Olympics' (with the two RGU teams beating the only AU team).
Scotland team manager, Gary Bain, did his Eddie the Eagle act - launching himself down the slope and into the River Dee.
Unfortunately, his Eskimo roll technique was not up to scratch and the rescue team swung into action.
The ball want ahead on the evening of the 4th and the actual races were held on the re-arranged date of 18th March.
