BPBC 3rd men's VIII

Fairbairn Cup (Invitation VIIIs)

1st invitational 3rd VIII, 29th overall
Time: 16:18
We beat the novices. By 6 seconds (but who's counting?). (BJ)
My first outing on bowside since last year's Fairbairn Cup. And it showed as I did justice to my placement in the 3-seat with some decidedly dodgy bladework; poor Martin at 2 was completely drenched in Cam water before we'd even started the wind ...
Probably could have rated a bit higher than we did and gone a bit faster (above 30 would have been nice). At least we beat the FaT Novices' and BPBC Women's crews, and were the fastest 3rd VIII in the competition... (Matt)
We were the only 3rd VIII in the competition. And Matt was splashing so much on bow side that about 15 strokes into the race I had to have a go at him.

Nevertheless, it was fun to be on the river and racing again. Particularly enjoyed the 'new race' call at Ditton.

Hope to go faster next year. 6 seconds is far too close for comfort! (Martin)
