Fairbairn Cup 2001

1st men's VIII (Senior VIIIs)

Coxed by: Andrew Fisher

3rd equal college VIII
Time: 13:46
In the Winter Head the 1st VIII came 4th, some 16 seconds behind Emmanuel. In the two weeks since, the crew has improved out of all recognition, earning solid technical improvements and gelling well. We set out knowing we had done everything right to overhaul Christ's and Jesus and ready to put everything towards taking down Emmanuel and Downing.

The row was good, with some untidy patches but some solid sections containing the kind of rhythm and cohesion we were looking for. We were the 3rd College - only 10 seconds behind Downing and Emmanuel over 14 minutes compared to the 16 seconds over 8 minutes at the Winter Head. This stands testament to the the improvements made over the last two weeks and bodes well for the gains that are there for the taking next term. (Andrew Fisher)
