Clare Novice Regatta, Mich Term 2000

2nd men's novice VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: A. Amouyel

2nd round
Won (comfortably) against Trinity Hall
We were a bit more apprehensive about this race than against Fitz B. However, judging from comments from Tit Hall's bank party the feeling was mutual. With a four seat lead after four strokes the writing was on the wall - 'It was never really going to happen'. The boys cruised home from the railway bridge, satisfied with a good six length lead. [by the webmaster]
Semi finals
Won (1 length) against Selwyn
Selwyn were clearly the neatest crew from any other college on the river - and were the major obstacle in the way of an all First and Third final. The tow path station gave us the advantage along the reach, and we pushed hard to open a lead of just over 1 length by the railway bridge. As the river and current swung in to their favour, they came back strongly as expected, to within half a length. However, our crew remained in command and as the advantage of the corner faded so did Selwyn; we continued to push hard to regain a lead of about a length. (Bumping a crew from the previous race moments before the finish added a little extra excitement.) An awesome performance. [by the webmaster]
