The Club's Results

May Term 2003

RTT Regatta
Fri 18th April
A Single Sculling regatta open to any of Tom's friends, held over 500m from the 2nd post upstream of Ditton to the top Colquhouns finish.
A select cross-section of the Cam's best and worst scullers battle it out in glorious sunshine in the inaugural "Rose the Twat" birthday Regatta. With the Cam's hitherto premier sculling event, the scum's Colquhoun Sculls, cancelled, the RTT Regatta is surely poised for promotion to Mitchell Cup status.

JPD in his single scull (Open 1x): Raced 3 rounds: Beat Mark Suret by 1 length in the plate final
MCP in his single scull (Open 1x): Lost to SAT (2 lengths) in the heats and Lost to Emily Eadington (out of sight) in the plate 1st round
AGRS: Raced 3 rounds: Beat RTT before falling in in the final
JWE (Open 1x): Beat Suret (2 lengths) in the 1st round and Lost to Rose (2 lengths) in the quarter finals
DJH in his single scull (Open 1x): Lost to RTT (2 lengths) in the 1st round and Lost to Suret (Clare) in the plate 1st round
SAT (Open 1x): Beat the Peckster (2 lengths) in the heats and Lost to Darcy (narrowly avoiding the easily verdict) in the quarter finals

Rebecca Palmer entered and finished 2nd of 3 entries.

RNP in her single scull: 2nd of 3 in the final

Bushe-Fox Freshman's sculls
Tue 22nd - Wed 23rd April
A 2000m knock-out regatta in the 'chasing' format for single sculls, for 'men in their first year of residence'.
Alex Summers, one of our Lightweights colours, entered and in his inaugural race as a representative of First and Third wins comfortably.

Eton Boy in his single scull: Raced 3 rounds: Won easily in the final

Fairbairn Junior Sculls
Tue 22nd - Wed 23rd April
A 2000m knock-out regatta in the 'chasing' format for single sculls
Alex Summers entered and added an impressive win against strong opponents to his earlier victory in the Bushe-Fox Freshman's sculls

Eton Boy in his single scull: Raced 3 rounds: Won narrowly in the final

Foster Fairbairn Pairs
Tue 22nd April
A 2000m knock-out regatta for coxless pairs as part of the Small Boats Regatta - raced in the 'chasing' format (boats starting 100 yards apart) from the posts before the motorway bridge to those by the pink house in the Reach.
The small boats races generally attract only a small number of entries - and by regularly entering crews we have had many successes in recent years. Talbott and Earl were competitive but lost narrowly to Caius' Lent VIII's middle pair.

Talbott / Earl (Men's 2-): Lost to Caius by 3-4 sec in the quarter finals

A timed headrace on the Cam for college and town crews
Useful early term race practice and the first hint of form for the May Bumps.

Cam Sprints

A fun 400m sprint regatta held by the boathouses

Peterborough Sprint Regatta
Sun 1st June
A multi-lane 500m sprint race held on the Peterborough Rowing Lake.
A popular event with college crews, probably due to it being a good way to practice the first 90 seconds of bumps racing. Many crews double up for the extra racing.

1st men's VIII (Senior3 VIII): Won (beat Fitz and Bradford) in the heats and Scratched (due to illness) in the final
1st men's VIII (Senior2 VIII): 3rd of 3 (beaten by Downing and Cambridge 99's) in the final
