The Club's Results

Cam Sprints, May Term 2001

4th men's VIII (3rd division)

Coxed by: H. Ballmann

Semi finals
Won against CCAT III (1 length)
The start was scrappy but they made up the stagger after about 100m. The risky line down the middle of the river meant they were a shade fortunate not to be disqualified (writes Neil Talbott), but their rowing became more settled towards the finish and they won by a length. [by the webmaster]
Final
Lost to CCAT II (1/2 length)
This time we had a pretty good start and after 200m, CCAT had not gained back any of the stagger. Again Henry was taking a risky line down the centre of the river, and on the apex of the bend was forced to yank his boat to the left, taking some run off the eight. CCAT, who were actually huge, simultaneously pushed and in the course of about 10 strokes went from half a length down to half a length up. Despite our best efforts over the final 100m, we couldn't regain this deficit and lost by half a length. Nevertheless, this was a very good row of which the boat can be extremely proud. (Flying)
