The Club's Results

Novice Fairbairn Cup 2000

A 2700m timed head race on the Cam for Cambridge College novice VIIIs
Thu 30th November

2nd Novice Men Win in the Club's Best Novice Fairbairn Results Ever

Disappointingly, the 1st men's novice crew have been denied victory in the Fairbairn Cup by an extraordinarily quick Jesus I. They finished 2nd (our best ever placing) in a record time. Overall, the results for the club are superb - our highest placings in Novice Fairbairns ever.

The women's 1st novice VIII have done magnificently to finish in 2nd behind only LMBC and the 2nd men's VIII demolished all other 2nd VIIIs - finishing over 40s ahead of the next highest, Jesus II. Meanwhile, the 3rd novice men's VIII finished an amazing 9th overall - also beating Jesus II by a comfortable margin.

The men's 4th and 5th and women's 2nd VIIIs can also be pleased with their results. The men's crews were both only beaten by two 3rd VIIIs - Pembroke and LMBC.


The event was organised by Jesus College Boat Club. At the bottom of this page there is a summary of the results of college crews and a link to Cambridge weather. Club members, please go here to add (or correct) results, crews or race reports.


1st men's novice VIII

2nd to Jesus I
Time: 9:21
I'd be lying if I said I could remember much about this race, but I remember Jesus won by about a second or two, which was very disappointing. I reckon the current didn't help us. It had rained the night before, and for whatever reason, we rowed in the afternoon rather than the morning with everyone else. Still, after the events of earlier in the term, it was nice to get around grassy in Peter Brandt.

Yup, my recollection is amazingly poor. Clearly as Dubya pointed out, we would have finished before Grassy. I expect I was probably relieved to get round Chesterton as well, after the, umm, aforementioned event :-o Apologies, didn't intend to suggest it was anyone's fault we raced when we did. Just one of those lessons learnt that I thought I'd put down, especially while Tom C seems to be revisiting past results. (Andy)
Sorry Andy, it was down to me that you raced in the afternoon and not the morning. When someone (don't recall who) asked a couple of days before the race if it were possible to race in the afternoon, I decided to arrange a division swap rather than just say no, on the basis that the weather report suggested conditions would be calmer in the afternoon, and also because you'd be able to start at the front of the division and be less vulnerable to traffic (since the previous year's finish position had been so poor -- you would have started 15th!). Didn't think about the stream; should have.

Also I don't think you went around grassy in this race; perhaps it's Chesterton you're thinking of? (Dubya)
Does anyone else like the way the first two photos show a future CULRC president and Goldie colour looking particularly unimpressive?! (RTT)
