1st men's VIII, Senior3 VIIIs

5th of 19 men's S3 VIIIs; 2nd of 10 colleges; 16th overall
Time: 18:33
We had a pretty good training session at Peterborough the previous weekend and (most of) the crew were looking forward to this, despite fears that yet another tyre on the trailer might burst on the way!

Indeed everything started out well and we had a very comfortable row and had a fairly long duel with Star Club's Sen. 1 crew who eventually went onn to come 2nd overall. However, most of the row was perhaps a little too comfortable, with the rating rarely going above a whopping 28!! This might explain our slightly slow time and lack of exhaustion... At least it was fun! (Rupert the Bear)

1st women's VIII, Senior3 VIIIs

10th of 17 women's S3 VIIIs; 4th of 7 college VIIIs
Time: 21:28
We went over the course at a fairly powerful but untidy 32. We overtook. We pushed off the bridge. It lasted a long time and was painful. In summary, it was Peterboroughish. :)

On a more positive note, we beat Queens' (chasing us in bumps) and Christs' (being chased by us) by miles, as well as Tit Hall, and would have won Novice VIIIs if Pia hadn't had points! Pembroke and LMBC both narrowly beat us, and Clare were the fastest college VIII by about 20secs.

Oh, and we also beat a Magdalene men's VIII! (Amelia)
