The Club's Results

Fairbairn Cup 2004

BPBC 2nd men's VIII (Invitation VIIIs)

Coxed by: Russ Glenn

Fastest 2nd VIII, 15th overall
Time: 15:05
Our paddling was pretty solid from the outset, with plenty of opportunity to lay down what power the we could muster, limited by rusty technique / lost fitness / sleep deprivation as appropriate. After a disasterous start and a couple of minutes to settle, we found a good rhythm which carried us through to the railway bridge and then a half-decent lift down the reach. It felt like we lost speed in the latter stages, certainly not managing much of a lift into the finish, but nonetheless posted a strong time in amongst the college 1st VIIIs and well ahead of any other second boats. Some great work from last-minute addition Russ in the cox's seat ensured we kept Benchers at bay on the row home as we enjoyed a bit of 'non-competitive steady state' in front of them (Jon)
