The Club's Results

Fairbairn Cup 1998

1st men's VIII (Senior VIIIs)

Coxed by: Julia Gog

5th of 52 men's VIIIs, 4th college VIII
Time: 14:42.54
The 1st VIII had a good solid chunky row and pushed ourselves hard. (Rich)
This was a very inexperienced crew with several members having never even been 2nd VIII before. Fisher, had been selected for the 7-seat with a 7:25 ergo which rather summed up our lack of power.

However, things had picked up in the last week of training and we were going reasonably well. We set off hard and never let the rate fall below 34. We were not really covering enough to justify this but everyone worked bloody hard to keep it up and we were entirely satisfied with our efforts losing only to a stacked Emma crew that broke the record, a composite crew of triallists and strong Downing and Caius VIIIs.
