Lightweight Boat Race success

Two St Catz students were part of the Oxford University Lightweight teams that raced against Cambridge at the Henley Boat Races on Saturday. In what is the lightweight version of the event that will be taking place on the Tideway next weekend, Anna Corderoy (2013, English) coxed the women’s team to victory over their Fenland rivals. Following a truly nail-biting race, they beat Cambridge by 6ft (a canvas) having been down by half a length for 1700m of the race and therefore managed to bring the trophy home to Oxford.

2016 Wallace Watson Award winners announced

At the end of the evening, the 2016 Award winners were announced. Angus Young (2013, Chemistry) is going to be cycling across Asia, whilst William Hartz (2013, Chemistry) will be heading deep into the Arctic Circle following in the ski tracks of the 1923 Oxford University Arctic Expedition.

Buy the 2016 Oxford Almanack!

You can still buy your copy of the 2016 Oxford Almanack!

It is only the second time in the Oxford Almanack's 340-year history that St Catz has been featured and this time it is portrayed in a beautiful painting by Cathy Read. The remainder of the sheet consists of a calendar for the year, which also includes information relevant to the university, as well as, for instance, sunrise and sunset times. Our inclusion in this year's Almanack will, in years to come, mark an important milestone in St Catz history and is a real tribute to the College community.
