2nd men's VIII, Monarchs of the Cam, Lower VIIIs

2nd in Lower VIIIs
Time: 9:35
Monarchs of the cam. The title aspired to by the 2nd VIII who went some way to justifying it today. Powerful yet graceful, immense yet modest and efficient yet sexy - the crew put in a fantabulous performance to warrant their title as 'most aesthetically pleasing lads (+rachel) on the river'. Burning it down the course the high point came on the corner before the reach, Munro braking early, slipping down elegantly through the gears as she hit the apex and then accelerating at blistering pace out into the straight - formula 1 stuff, and not at all how you would expect a woman to drive. The time is obviously wrong of course, we had to start and finish the race within the times set by Will's toilet breaks and his bladder can only last 8 minutes. This therefore puts us as fastest boat overall - a much more likely result. Bring on Peterborough!!! (D.J.T. Newton)
Fairly good row: if I had to fault it, come the bumps we want to rate a few pips higher; but overall we did very well.
As far as the race times go - hmmmmm, think about the following results:

Second leg of the H2H - we beat Corpus by 45 seconds in a not very good row. Robinson head - they beat us by 18 seconds when we had a good row. Hmmmmmm.

Likewise, second leg of the H2H, we beat Girton by 53 seconds. CCAT managed to pip them by 13 seconds in Newnham. Despite pulling away from them over the course (started behind a reasonable way, couldn't see them as we crossed the line), they have 'beaten' us by 15 seconds.

(This isn't even starting on the fact we came in behind our 4th VIII)

These things always sound like sour grapes, but at current counting, two results have already been changed by the organisers significantly. (Anything to do with being short)

2nd women's VIII

11th W1 crew
Time: 11:47
This was actually W2. I didnt see them race, but their result was pretty smart- 4th fastest lower boat, and 15th over all- despite having ludicrously linited water time recently due to the yellow flag. Well done ladies. (jo)
