The Club's Results

Peterborough June Regatta, May Term 2005

1st women's VIII (Senior4 VIIIs)

Coxed by: Charlie Allen

Heats
Won (set new course record)
Time: 3:31
The strong tail wind that dominated the lake all day might have been the only reason we got to the other end of the course, because it certainly wasn't good technique, timing or general rowing that did. (Lack of a cox box didn't help either.) Luckily, none of our other races were quite as horrendous as this first one, and we were considerably calmer and more controlled for the rest of the day. Surprisingly, our spack managed to set a new course record, and our time was the fastest of all 3 heats. (Mika)
Final
Won (another course record!)
Time: 3:28
Much more solid and committed than the heats. Still spacky and finishes weren't great, but there was definitely a solid rhythm at times. The other crews were close for most of the race, but when they died around 750m, we didn't (quite so much) and managed to gain some distance into the finish.

Another course record, and the only crew without matching kit. Mwa ha ha... (Mika)
