Clare Novice Regatta, Mich Term 2001

1st women's novice VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: Caroline Reed

1st round
Beat Downing (5 lengths)
The crew displayed their confidence, if not unfailing competence, in this race. The start was superb - cruising out to a comfortable lead within the first dozen strokes. They thought better of rowing comfortably to the line, though.... much better to scare the bank party with a triple crab shipwreck for a while, letting the opposition back in to the race. No matter, they went on to win comfortably, as they knew they would. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Beat Robinson (3 lengths)
The bank party rather hoped that all the crabs and things had been worked out of the system for this, the 2nd race. Such dreams were quickly shattered, though, with Nonny adding a bit of drama to the plot early in the proceedings from the stroke seat. The crew knew the script and had practised this before, though, so no matter - they went on to win comfortably, as they knew they would. [by the webmaster]
Quarter finals
Beat Girton (2 - 3 lengths)
At last, a most boring race. A solid win, no drama, no fuss. Nice one. [by the webmaster]
Semi finals
Lost to LMBC (3 - 4 lengths)
This time, up against the crew who went on to win, it was always going to be a tough race. The crew rose to the occasion and rowed a very good race (aside from Kim's feet suddenly popping up to head height as they came out of the shoes!), but some solid work and the day's best rowing proved no match for LMBC's blistering pace.

The ladies in red (sorry, my mistake - FaT dark blue) can expect a tougher battle in Fairbairns. [by the webmaster]
