3rd women's novice VIII

Cambridge Winter Head (Novice VIIIs)

7th of 11 women's novice VIIIs, only 3rd novice VIII entered
Time: 14:28
A beauty of a row. The girls took it up well off the start- Lauren doing a beautiful job of keeping the ratio. They oh-so-nearly made it round grassy, and recovered incredibly well from a gentle encounter with the bank, only to blade clash with the Maggie 1st novice boys,who foolishly attempted overtaking on the outside of ditton. Both crews seemed to come to a stand still... and then the girls took off, embarassing the boys; who took an eternity to get past and never pulled away convincingly.
The row from the railway bridge was full of guts, and the finish was great. Very very nice result!
Many thanks to TomC-inspirational coxing! (jo)
The scenes in Plough Reach somehow managed to resemble those of Lent Term 2000! (Although clearly a vastly insuperior photographer.) (Martin)

Clare Novice Regatta (Plate)

1st round
Lost to Trinity Hall B (~4 lengths)
A solid start gave us an early advantage of about 10 feet, and despite a few bad strokes things were going pretty well. Unfortunately bowside all got stuck in at the finish somewhere about halfway down the reach, causing us to crash into the towpath. We gained on them considerably up to the railway bridge, but it fell apart slightly towards the finish. Pretty encouraging overall, and we'll undoubtedly beat them in Fairbairns. (TomC)
A good row in very difficult circumstances - thanks must go to Agnes who subbed in despite never having rowed with the crew before, and having done no high rating work in an VIII - a daunting experience no doubt!! The girls coped well with a new boat and I think they all know that they have the potential to whup Tit Hall B's arse in Fairbairns, and will be going out to prove this. This wasn't a defeat, it was unfortunate but doesn't reflect their ability in the slightest. We're still really proud of them and our high hopes and expectations haven't altered - bring on Fairbairns! (Danae)

I didn't see the race, but can I just say congratulations to the 3rd women for being the 2nd fastest 3rd boat on the river (behind those Maggie beasts). Well done girls - stonking result! (Dan)
