The Club's Results

Peterborough Sprint Regatta, May Term 2003

1st men's VIII (Senior2 VIII)

Coxed by: S. E. Richards

Final
3rd of 3 (beaten by Downing and Cambridge 99's)
Time: 1:28
We found we had only 7 oarsmen present as we boated - Henry was nowhere to be seen. Just as we were about to push off (with Joe moved to 7 and the 3 seat empty), Henry was seen running towards us. He had fallen asleep and did not look in great shape. The standard of the row down to the start was low - we were pushed for time and tense due to the boating drama. We had to spin straight on to our stakeboat with only 500m warm up.

The start was better than the one from our S3 heat, and built up to an encouragingly strong peak. We again failed to capitalise on this, and the rowing deteriorated somewhat allowing both opposing crews to move ahead. Downing won with a time of 1:25. (JPD)
