The Club's Results

Cam Sprints, May Term 2002

A fun 400m sprint regatta held by the boathouses
Sun 12th May

Three First and Third crews win pots!

The men's third VIII won their four races in the 'Men's lower VIIIs' division to win their event and take home handsome peuter tankards (known in the jargon simply as 'pots'!) Also successful were John Earl and Neil Talbott in Hambleden (the club's coxless pair) and a First and Third / Black Prince boat club composite women's IV.

2nd men's VIII, City Sprints IV, Men's IVs

Semi finals
Beat BPBC
We narrowly beat Black Prince by a canvas after some incredible spacking off the start, no time on the slide and a lot of water being propelled vertically. [by the webmaster]
Final
Won Men's IVs - beat St. Neots
With forearms burning from the deplorable rowing of our semi, we were well up for the next race - St. Neots in the final. A fantastic start and amazing boat speed meant an easy win. (Dan)

3rd men's VIII, NT for RP, College lower VIIIs

1st round
Beat CCAT A
Beat CCAT comfortably, despite spacking at the start. (Think 'Buffaloes' rather than 'Gazelles'.) [by the webmaster]
Quarter finals
Beat First and Third V
Slightly cruelly the 5th boat had to content with the 3rd boat, who, it turned out, were on a bit of a mission. This was mainly a success for the Lower Boats Captains ability to select crews! To be fair, 5 looked very solid and have improved alot this term. They remain committed and enthusiastic and are a pleasure to coach. [by the webmaster]
Final
Won College Lower VIIIs by beating Sidney B
FaT 3 had a fantastic start and so did Sidney Sussex. Then we began to pull away and things looked even better. THEN (after some aggressive coxing by Chris) things looked brilliant as SS spakked straight into the side. No problems! A win, and Pots for the 3rd VIII! (Dan)

4th men's VIII, College lower VIIIs

1st round
Lost to Sidney B
A caterpillar-like start didn't bode well for the crew, although Jo, their new novice cox, should be congratulated on some superb coxing - not bad for her 3rd outing! [by the webmaster]

JWE in his single scull, Men's 1x

1st round
Lost to Kings School, Ely
Having raced the Head 2 Head earlier in the day, this was my second outing in a single in a month. The quality of my sculling being low, it was a very short outing indeed. (Dubya)

Talbott/Earl, Senior2 2-

Final
Beat X-Press easily
If anything was going to go wrong, it was probably going to happen on the first stroke. Fortunately, the first stroke was class and we scorched into the lead. At half-way, with X-Press trailing in our considerable wake, John thought we should stride it out a bit, and assuming that I was thinking something along the same lines said 'up to you'. Unfortunately I heard 'Up 2!' which we duly did, to rousing applause from our boathouse. We sailed over the finish line with X-Press barely in sight to win Senior 2 and my second pot of the day.
