2nd men's VIII, Lower VIIIs division

Second in Lower VIIIs division, 9th Overall
Time: 9:16
Reduced the gap between us and the Maggie Scum to 14s from around a minute only two weeks ago - Not bad for our second outing in this particular crew configuration.
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. (Matt)

3rd men's VIII, Lower VIIIs division

Winners of M3 by 44 s. 5th of 19 lower division boats, 16th overall
Time: 9:50
A very good result for the third VIII, apparently only 10s slower than Sidney I and beating amongst others Robinson II (5 places ahead in the Lents), Girton II (2 ahead), Selwyn II (directly ahead), Downing III (2 behind) and Fitz II (3 behind). Jesus III (starting directly behind) did not race. (Martin)
Excellent result. Only our second ever head length piece (the first being a minute and a half slower at a rating 5 pips slower) and our fourth outing. The best news for us is that we have plenty of room for improvement... we will be much faster come the bumps! (Michael)

2nd women's VIII, 2nd division

22nd of 23 Crews
Time: 12:59
This race was the first time in this configuration and was viewed as practice for the Lents getting-on race in two weeks time. We started off well, and thanks to 110% effort and support from the bank, we retained a steady gap between us and the crew behind. Towards the end, the crew behind put in some effort and gained some ground but we held out until the finish.
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 ! (Katherine)
