1st men's IV

4th college coxed IV
Time: 11:25
The Light IV's unfortunate incident could have been the reason that the Men's 1st 4+ managed to get a better time than the 4- by 5 seconds. I bank partied them and thought they were looking good. They held it well at the end and, although they were overtaken near Grassy by a Christs crew they managed to regain their place and by the end Christs were left trailing in their wake by at least 4 lengths if not more.

Light IV

2nd of 3 Coxless IVs
Time: 11:30
The men's light 4- in division 1 had a decent race but it would have been significantly better if they hadn't crashed into the bank at the Railway Bridge. Apparently Mr Fisher (their bank party) was overcome by Will's ability to steer to the point that he forgot to tell them not to crash. (Anna)

2nd men's IV

3rd of 7 lower college coxed IVs
Time: 11:58
The men's 2nd 4+ went OK despite not having a cox until Saturday morning. The ever charming Mr Thorne stepped in and saved the day, coxing them through what was, I am told, a respectable performance. (Anna)

3rd men's IV

6th of 7 lower college coxed IVs (only 3rd IV)
Time: 12:51
The men's 3rd 4+ didn't have the best of days. They didn't have a bow man so had to postpone til the 4th division when Mr Harboe was able come down and rescue them. They crashed, were overtaken and did look a bit tired by the end however, they were still keeping in time well. (Anna)

1st women's IV

4th college coxed IV
Time: 13:20
The Women's 1st 4+ did well and, according to their bank party were looking good. They seemed to have had a good race. Their time was 13.20 and their cox must have been good as she was snapped up by a Southampton ARC crew who had got to Cambridge but found they had no cox. Most unfortunate. Mr Glass captured their magnificent row on camera I believe. (Anna)

1st men's novice VIII

Completed the course, & beat some crews too!
Time: 13:37
The lads remained unfazed by seeing the twisting corners of grassy et al for the initial time minues before their first ever race. Of course, for many of them it was their first time in a boat since the week before due to the flooding. Dispite my concerns the crew concentrated as Will went over the final thoughts [including 'what to do if you catch a crab !'] and main areas to concentrate on. The sun was shining as the condemned men got into Titan, their trusty steed....!

I just hoped they'd come through over the next twenty or so minutes - and did they ever ! The rolling start saw the eight moving as a crew, and the power really did go down through the water. Special mention should probably go to all of them for a stirling effort, but to summarise: Henry and Matt for a superb grassy corner [I hope that stroke side wasn't spakking when I wasn't looking !], Ed for catching up 3 outings worth of technique without complaint after recovering from injury, Andrew for finally getting the hang of slowing the slide a bit, Mike for the incredible blade bend picture, David for keeping on rowing when Viktor crabbed and Mike had to stop, Viktor for crabbing at stroke (!), Ally for crabbing during the 'last twenty' [don't worry mate, we've all done it.] and Will for coxing at the last minute, doing a fantastic job with a novice eight during a real race, and not crashing this time... (Dan)

2nd women's IV

3rd of 5 lower college coxed IVs
Time: 14:23
The Women's 2nd 4+ had a good race made more interesting by the presence of their fairly unorthodox cox, Mr Graham Fisher. They held off a Magdalene crew (not sure which one) and finished the race rating 36. They were all shattered by the end, particularly the uncommonly short one sitting at 3. (Anna)
