|The men's 1st IV had a superb row this afternoon, attacking the favourites, Christ's, and loosing by just 3 seconds. Well done guys! Something of an improvement over the 40 seconds deficit at the weekend....!?
The 2nd men's IV and the Coxless IV also cruised comfortably through the day's races, beating Tit Hall II and Jesus respectively. More details to follow....

|The light IV realised approaching the railway bridge towards the start that no start had ever been practised....
After easying and deciding on something, a couple of practises managed to go in a straight line, and we were ready for the opposition - Jesus, reportedly their first IV.
Jesus had us off the start, and then our superior fitness (don't ask me how) kicked in, and we started pulling away. When Jesus brushed the bank along the reach, it was all over.

|The 1st coxed IV had lost by 39 seconds over the weekend, and had to pull a blinder out of the hat to do something.
The race plan appeared simple - pull hard, and keep doing lifts until the finish line, or you pass out, whichever was sooner.
Fortunately for the rowers' healths, the finish line was first, but the margin was a loss by 3 seconds - a hugely impressive result.
