In IM3 VIIIs HCBC raced in the final against Keble M2, who they beat by 3/4 length despite a ropey start due to windy conditions.

In the Senior VIIIs semifinal against the home club Worcester RC they were neck and neck throughout, and in the last 3 strokes HCBC pushed through to win by a foot on the line.  M1 lost in the final against Keble M1, featuring 5 OUBC rowers an one from OULRC. HCBC made a decent start, but Keble pushed through and won comfortably.

HCBC also entered a 4+ into NOV and IM3 categories.
