2nd men's VIII, Tom for JPD (2nd division)

Coxed by: Sam Adams

1st round
Beat Trinity Hall II (2 1/2 lengths)
A somewhat tense start led to a slightly rocky but comfortable row. The margin was 2 1/2 lengths (approximately), although we had taken the pressure down a bit before the finish. [by the webmaster]
Semi finals
Beat Emmanuel II (1 1/2 lengths)
Somewhat better row than vs Tit Hall, with a slightly stronger headwind. Took till after the surge to move out in front, but still comfortably ahead before the railway bridge. [by the webmaster]
Final
Beat Wolfson I (1 1/2 lengths)
Wolfson had already beaten Peterhouse 1, and they seemed to have put in a respectable Head of the Cam result (only 5 or 6 secs behind Sidney over a head course, and Sidney had been a bit quicker than us at Bedford), so we were prepared for a hard race. Again the start was not as loose as we would have liked and they moved up a bit over the first 5 or 6 strokes, though we had surged back down to 36ish before they finished winding and at that point started to move back. Our pace was considerably quicker than against Emmanuel (a comfortable rating of 36 instead of 34) because we were pressed a bit harder, but nonetheless we had clear water by the railway bridge and were not under pressure at the finish. A satisfying day out, and Mr Walker's first pot! (Dubya)
