The Club's Results
Peterborough Summer Sprint, Summer 2003
JPD/RTT (Elite 2-)
With an entry of five, three of four semi-finalists went through to join Reading in the final. We had a good row in an awkward, gusting cross-head wind. Steering was not easy, but we avoided too much overlap with the buoys. With 100m to go, the first two boats were out of our reach, but we were about level with Peterborough. With 3 strokes to go Tom reckoned we were just ahead, but over the line it must have been within a couple of inches. After a long delay, third place was given to Peterborough. The winners put up a time of 1:49 - 9 seconds slower than Cantabs' S2 time in good conditions earlier in the day.
