Cambridge Winter Head (Novice VIIIs)

8th in Novice VIIIs - 2nd of the 5 cambridge college crews
Time: 11:44
For a first race this was a different experience, not only with us being entirely confused about when the race actually started but how to pass traffic etc. We therefore hit it hard from as soon as we realised we had actually started racing and never really stopped. The traffic in grassy was well met by a novel line from Dilini, and until the last 300m everything seemed to be running smoothly. At this point we tried to bring her home too hard, resulting in a caught crab and untidy catches. Overall though an exciting first race. (A.J.P. Dewbery)

The nightmare conditions made things difficult on the start; after 10 minutes of attempts, the start marshall had to just start it with the boats at wierd angles - a fair call, but unfortunate given Delini had just asked bow and three to straighten it up.

Having lost between a half and one length in the ensuing confusion, the guys then held their position for a large part of the reach, despite 2's blade popping out (and calmy sorted!), and a couple of small crabs en-route.

Having made little impression on CCAT's lead, approaching the railway bridge they needed to dig deep; a storming run into and under it saw them move up to 1/4 length ahead... but it was too near the ragged edge and what looked like a v. promising position was struck by one disaster too many.

A disappointingly early exit, but the crew hope to make up for it on Thursday. (Martin)
