The Club's Results

University IVs 1999

1st men's IV (1st division)

Coxed by: Ros Liu

1st round
Beat LMBC II (9.7s)
Time: 7:34.7
Rowing with Dan Micklethwaite as a sub for injured Gordon Carver, we thankfully had a good row - it felt good and we pushed hard to the finish, beating LMBC (their 2nd IV) by 10s. Any less would have been embarrassing. (Martin)
Semi finals
Lost to Christ's (1.7s)
Time: 7:49.3
Racing Christs for a place in the final. There was never going to be much in it but we should have won. We didn't. My eagerness to make sure the light IV had support for their tough race meant that we had nobody on the bank when we needed it; Christ's army of supporters came into their own when we were level at the beginning of the reach. We failed to fight and lost by 1.7 seconds. The weather was pretty nasty - with a strong head wind which pulled our scratch crew apart badly and Dan - our only option for a stroke - isn't the most battle hardened man ever - but there really is no excuse when its that close.
Gutted. (Martin)
