The Club's Results

Summer 2002

Single sculls

St Neots Sprint (Novice 1x), JPD in his single scull

Quarter finals
Beat ? (2 lengths)
Hit a buoy on the outside of the course on the 9th stroke, and then went completely outside the course boundary, neccessitating a sharp strokeside and then bowside corner to avoid a launch and get back on course. Fortunately, I was still level with my oppo, and was able to move away in what was probably my best scull of the day. (JPD)
Semi finals
Beat ? (2 lengths)
Much better steering, but the sculling left a lot to be desired. My start, which I have been working on quite a bit recently, allowed me to gain an advantage of maybe 1/2 length, but my oppo only dropped back further after about 300m. (JPD)
Final
Beat ? (3 lengths)
My oppo looked to be about 16 years old, but quite technical. He gained a few feet on the start, after which I steadily sculled through and pulled away to obtain senior sculling status. (JPD)

St Neots Sprint (Senior4 1x), JPD in his single scull

Quarter finals
Beat ? (2 lengths)
After some shocking sculling and still level with my oppo at the half way point, I decided it was time to ditch any attempt to scull properly and just push hard for the finish. This worked better than I expected, and quickly opened up a lead of a length, which became 2 by the end. (JPD)
Semi finals
Lost to Star Club (2 or 3 lengths)
My opposition gained a few feet off the start. I then hit a buoy and missed a couple of strokes, which my oppo did a few strokes later, after which he had about 1/2 length advantage. He was just a bit quicker than I was, and my pushes didn't seem to make much of a difference.

Will complete when results are available. (JPD)
