The Club's Results

Summer 2004

Henley Veteran's Regatta
Fri 9th - Sat 10th July
A regatta held on the weekend following Henley Royal Regatta for veteran crews.
Needless to say, First and Third were not represented, but Iain Law, our head coach and boatman, subbed into a St. Ives quad and won Vet B quads.

St Ives, Iain the boatman at stroke (Vet B quads): Overall winnners in the final

Kingston Amateur Regatta
Sat 10th July
A 1000m three-lane regatta, held on the River Thames in South West London
Kingston is well-known to First and Third, as it has hosted numerous Easter training camps. This regatta, held the weekend after Henley Royal, is occasionally entered by College rowers who have stayed in Cambridge for the summer, often with alumni.

Hannah Cornfield in her single scull (W NV 1x): Won (row over) in the 1st round and Lost (withdrew) in the semi finals

Gloucester Regatta
Sat 28th August
An 800m regatta held on the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.
The first leg of the infamous Gloucester-Bristol-Ross combination; consumption of alcoholic beverages has been fairly conservative so far and so you can expect some reasonable competition.

Davies and Rose (Senior2 2-): Raced 3 rounds: beat Boston (3 lengths) in the final
Coxless pairs (Senior2 2-): Beat Cardiff (DQ) in the 1st round and Lost to Boston (1 length) in the semi finals

Bristol Avon Regatta
Sun 29th August
A 500m regatta held next to the SS Great Britain on the historic Bristol docks.
The second part of the weekend including Gloucester and Ross regattas. Your opposition will no doubt be experiencing the effects of moderate consumption of drink from the night before; unfortunately, so will you.

Black Prince/1st and 3rd/Churchill/Emmanuel Composite (Senior2 4+): beat Cygnet (1 1/4 lengths) in the semi finals and beat Cantabs (1 1/4 lengths) in the final
JPD in his single scull (Senior3 1x): beat Imperial College (NRO) in the semi finals and beat Burton Leander (easily) in the final
TWR in his single scull (NV 1x): Raced 3 rounds: Lost to Avon County by 1 2/3 lengths in the semi finals
Coxless pairs (Senior 3 2-): Beat Avon County (several lengths) in the final

Ross Regatta
Mon 30th August
A course of variable length, claimed to be 750m but undoubtedly much shorter, held on the ridiculously shallow and twisty River Wye.
The third and final leg of the bank holiday weekend regattas. The smell of flat beer fills the fields below the chocolate box town above. Some people can be found drinking in the morning light. Most people are soundly asleep at the time of their first race. Things inevitably run behind, but nobody cares. Although the course has a considerable bowside corner, most crews don't make it that far before hitting the bank, their opposition or a crew crawling down to the start. If you can resist the party the night before, you are almost certain to win your event.

Black Prince/1st and 3rd/Churchill/Emmanuel Composite (Senior 2 4+): Raced 3 rounds: Beat Furnivall (several lengths) in the final
Coxless pairs (Senior 3 2-): Beat Upton (1 ft) in the semi finals and Beat Weybridge (2 l) in the final

Cambridge Autumn Regatta
Sun 12th September
600m side-by-side on the reach from the railway bridge to Ditton
One of the last regattas of the UK summer season, Cambridge Autumn is organised by the 99s. It's normally held too early in term to attract College rowers, but attracts rowers from the South East after one last pot.

Davies and Rose (Senior1 2-): beat Norwich by 4? lengths in the semi finals and beat Rob Roy easily in the final
Davies and Rose (Elite 2-): beat Rob Roy by a canvas in the final
