The Club's Results

RTT Regatta, May Term 2003

JPD in his single scull (Open 1x)

Single sculls
in Magpie
Jon Davies
Quarter finals
Lost to Alex Summers by 1 length
As I was on the inside station, Alex had a 1/2 length head start. My start was good (or at least agressive), and after a few strokes we were clashing blades. Alex moved quickly away, and was able to cruise to the finish in front whilst I spannered at a high (but rapidly dropping) rate. (JPD)
Plate semi finals
Beat Emily Eadington easily
Raced in Muddy Waters for this as Dan Holland had taken Magpie. Unfortunetly couldn't get to backstops, but otherwise felt a lot nicer to scull in.

Note to self: single strokes in tail wind need more work. (JPD)
Plate final
Beat Mark Suret by 1 length
On the outside station got about 3/4 length on the start, but Mark closed to about 1/2 on the corner. The tail wind had picked up and was whipping up some reasonable waves against the stream approaching the railway bridge. The sculling was not of a particularly high standard (meaning: terrible), but it got me through to the finish. (JPD)
