The Club's Results

Head of the Charles, Mich Term 2004

BPBC 1st men's IV (Championship Fours)

Coxed by: Raf Carbonell

20th of 25 crews
Time: 13:12.7
Slightly disappointing to finish 20th; however our time would have placed us third in Club fours and we were pleased with that last year so perhaps it's not too bad.
On the shortened course we started fairly close to Bates in front, meanwhile Penn AC overtook the crew behind us very quickly and started to make a move for us before Weeks. We took a very sharp Weeks Bridge corner right on Bates' tail and managed to buy a few seconds off Penn as they didn't corner as well, possibly because their cox was now concentrating on gesturing at us to move. Penn came through us and Bates fairly soon after but unfortunately we were left on the outside of Bates for the masive bowside corner which probably cost us a few seconds and a place.
We just made it through Charles Eliot Bridge and as the corner straightened up absolutely dropped Bates - which was nice, but served to heighten our frustration at being forced wide on the corner. The run-in then seemed a lot shorter than last year, but this probably reflects the shorter course. (Simon)
