Clare Novice Regatta, Mich Term 2001

2nd men's novice VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: B. A. Kirmani

1st round
Beat Wolfson A ( ~ 5 lengths)
A gutsy and drama free race saw the 2nd VIII dispatch Wolfson comfortably. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Beat Downing B (3/4 length)
Downing B were huge. The bank party kept this observation to themselves, but the crew did well to remain composed when Baz saw fit to point it out. Boasting some pretty nice paddling too, Downing looked to the bank party like a formidable challenge....

Put simply, the guys absolutely flew, and fully deserved this hard won win. [by the webmaster]
Quarter finals
Lost to Pembroke A
Judging by the initial pace of the crews, this was going to be a cracking race, with the crews running neck a neck for the first half minute. It was not to be, however. A seat disaster at 6 put us down to 6 men for the majority of the race, giving Pembroke, who went on to win a place in the final, an easy row to the line. A frustrating end to the day, but overall an impressive showing from the 2nd VIII who, as only 2nd novice boat in the quarter finals, confirmed themselves as serious challengers for the 2nd VIII cup in Fairbairns next week. [by the webmaster]
