1st round
Beat Catz (alot)
Dont know what the crew thought but I gather they came past Catz in the Gut where they had crashed. (Dan)
They spent at least a minute parked on various banks, and we were faster than them. We didn't row the last half especially well but there wasn't really any need to. (Tom C)
Semi finals
Lost to Catz (43s)
There was a significant headwind through most of the course which we struggled to find a rhythm in. And they were quite good, hence the result. (Tom C)

1st round
Beat Corpus (28s)
Time: 8:38
A pretty awful race to be honest. We never found a rhythm and the boat never ran very well. however we put in quite a bit of power and that saw us through. We had a couple of dodgy moments including one where steered us into the bank just before the plough as i was watching them crash at grassy. After that there was a whole series of shipwrecks down the course. If we hit a rhythm and get it set up like it has been in our prerace pieces we should go quite fast. (Dan)
Semi finals
Beat Peterhouse (~15s)
A pretty good start to this race. Though we could have done with double clamming as the wind was quite strong. We were chasing though and were about a length off at Ditton and so despite a very bad corner and a bit of a slog up the reach we still had them by quite a good margin. (Dan)
Lost to Catz (~15s)
Dont know the official result yet but Im a bit gutted. We had a nice start and I think closed on them a bit. We failed to take first post properly, had a nice grassy and then an ok push down Plough reach. Unfortunately it went a bit wrong from there. Ditton was very bad, I came over too soon and then really struggled to get round what becomes quite a tight corner. All the way up the reach I struggled to hold our line and in the end I dont quite think we capitalised on our power. (Dan)
