4th men's VIII (Lower division)

1st round
Won against Caius IV (rowed over)
Unfortunately our opponents failed to turn up. We rowed the course anyway for practice. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Won against Downing III (3 or 4 lengths)
We pulled away right from the start and increased our lead throughout the course of the race, eventually winning by about 3 or 4 lengths. Our good start set things up well for the remainder of the race - the rowing was nice and "chunky" throughout, and we disposed of our opponents in a rather pleasing clinical fashion. [by the webmaster]
Semi finals
Lost to LMBC III
Our hour-long wait in the cold gave us some time to analyse our victory over Downing, and we all decided that it was our strong, controlled style that had won us that race. Fortified by this thought, we rowed down to the other end of the reach to line up against Maggie. Unfortunately, the same tactics were not to work, and they pulled away from us gradually throughout the race, much the same as we did to Downing. So, it seems their superior fitness won them the race - maybe we need to spend more hours in the gym. But then, we are the fourth VIII.... (H.W. Clouting)
