1st round
Won against Magdalene (4 lengths)
Magdalene put up quite a good fight for the first half of the course, but thereafter appeared to fold spectacularly. [by the webmaster]
2nd round
Lost to Gonville Boat Club (3/4 length)
"Gonville" are Caius Boat Club old boys - Caius' version of Black Prince Boat Club. They fielded a large and undeniably experienced crew. Whilst disappointing, this was a cracking race to watch. Gonville took a couple of feet over the course of the start and the wind, but some good work thereafter saw us work our way back - drawing dead level. The two crews then raced side by side, with blades virtually touching as Andrew carefully steered our crew, racing around the outside of long reach, as close as he dared to the opposition. However, with a series of powerful pushes Gonville gradually started to draw ahead and with the slack stream doing little to impede them under the railway bridge, continued to extend their lead to the finish. [by the webmaster]
