1st round
Beat Wolfson C easily
Having never practised racing starts before, the 4th VIII did well to start pulling away very early into the race. Wolfson then crashed into the bank within the first 30 seconds, at which point they took a huge lead which was maintained at a ludicrously low rate until the finish. Overall a good row which set them up nicely for the next round. (Phil)
2nd round
Excelled against Christ's C by 1 and a quarter lengths
Having not seen the 4ths row for ages, I was extremely impressed. Apparently they'd rated about 18 in the first race and still got an "easily" verdict. In this race they reached about 24 spm and took a length advantage very quickly. A crab half-way down the reach saw Christ's get back to about 3/4 of a length by the time we'd recovered, but the boys pulled it back together well to get the advantage back to just over a length by the Railway Bridge, which they held all the way to the finish. Impressive stuff, good luck on Saturday!! (Richard)
