A sunny, calm Sunday morning in Minsterworth, Gloucestershire played host to Red Bull Outrow 2015.  8 crews lined up to take on each other and attempt to outrow the River Severn Bore.

Seeclub Zurich and University West of England clashed off the start which put them on the back foot and saw UWE caught by the wave first.  Seeclub Zurich then displayed great composure under pressure to row through the field and whilst UCL, Newcastle Uni, Hong Kong Royal Yacht Club, VSR Belgium and Thames RC were all gradually swallowed up one at a time.

Seeclub made it just over 4km before being picked up on the face of the bore and Oxford Brookes were victorious being the last to get wet at the 4.5km mark, just 500m short of the finish line.
