The Club's Results

Cambridge 99's Regatta, May Term 2003

2nd men's VIII (2nd division)

Coxed by: Rachel Munro

Quarter finals
Lost (DQ) vs. Peterhouse I (Meadow Side)
A solid start and chunky powerful row saw us take a length off Peterhouse I on the outside of the bend by about the pink house. Thereafter, the Peterhouse crew responded by coming back at us through the railway bridge. A slight misjudgement by Rachel saw a blade clash between our 7-man and their 2-man. We were sufficiently unsettled by this to let them gain a little more ground and finished about 1/2 a length to the good.
Peterhouse rather unsportingly appealed in unison as they crossed the line, and the umpire upheld the DQ.

Plate final
Won (3 feet) vs. Corpus I (Meadow Side)
A worse start and first half than in the previous round against Peterhouse gave us about 3/4 of a length on the outside again. Coming through the railway bridge once again we sagged slightly as Corpus pushed, but we unleashed our last reserves of strength upon Rachel's command and held them off for a rather surprisingly close official verdict of 3 feet.
