Video Of The Week: The Blue Star Takes on Italy
This week's featured video comes to us from Newcastle University Boat Club, and gives an inside look at their recent trip to Italy to race some Italian international crews, with loads on on-the-water shots thanks to no shortage of GoPro cameras (not to mention the kind of 'mileage that makes champions,' as the NUBC squad took the opportunity to defrost and fully embrace the idea of 'suns out, guns out'). The soundtrack could fit nicely into our Winter 2015 Erg(o) Mixtape, and the trip was a successful one for the Newcastle first eight, not least because of the scenery around Lake Sabaudia.

Congrats to Newcastle on the result, which is one of several strong results posted by NUBC already during the 2014-2015 season.
