Clare Novice Regatta, Mich Term 2003

3rd men's novice VIII (Plate)

Coxed by: Dave Minch-Dixon

1st round
Beat Downing C (~1 1/2 lengths)
We had a slightly slower start than Downing, but came back fast, quickly getting about a quarter of a length up. Using the inside-line advantage coming round the railway bridge, we managed to get clear water between us and Downing - they pushed hard for the finish for a very good first round win. Overall, it was a very good row, fingers crossed for round 2. (Richard)
2nd round
Lost to CCAT B (~4 feet)
After a slightly shaky start with CCAT going nearly a length up, the 3rd novices came back at them from about half way down the reach. Gradually, their stern went from level with our bowman to level with our 6 man. We had the advantage going underneath the railway bridge and once through the bridge we managed to get ahead by about 6 feet. CCAT pushed hard for the finish, and we tried to respond, but unfortunately, this resulted in some anti-phase rowing, allowing CCAT to win by the smallest of margins. (Richard)
