The Club's Results
Robinson Head, Lent Term 2003
A timed head race over 2200 - from Little Bridge to Peter's Posts
Fri 7th February
The event was organised by Robinson College Boat Club. At the bottom of this page there is a summary of the results of college crews and a link to Cambridge weather. Club members, please go here to add (or correct) results, crews or race reports.
A solid rolling start followed by an unnecessary surge was followed by a good first half to the race, complemented by an excellent racing line from Rachel. As fatigue started to creep into the crew's rowing, the efficiency of the strokes dropped as we made our way up the long reach. After being told to "'ave it !" (thank you, Rachel !) coming under the railway bridge, we powered our way towards the finish line, but proved unable to post a faster time than LMBC 2.
A big thank-you to Henry and Iain (and Rachel) for shouting abuse at us for the best part of ten minutes.
Comedy value was provided at the P&E by the Downing crews congregating at the finish. Jenny lost the orange that she had found earlier, but sustinance was provided in the form of Andy's Skittles and Buttons
Big thanks to Vicki, Helen and Mike for support from the bank. A gutsy row all round !
