1st women's novice VIII

Queens' Novice Ergo Competition (1st division)

17th, 15th of 26 1st VIIIs
Time: 16:08.1
Well done girls! This was a really good row - 5th in the heat. Had hopes for the final, but it was not to be. There must have been beasts in the other heat! Still, everyone beat their time and you all made us feel so proud. (Harriet)
Just out of interest, did they pull much harder than all the men? (Rose the Twat)

Cambridge Winter Head (Student Beginner VIIIs)

9th out of 14 women student beginner VIIIs
Time: 13:35
Didn't actually get to see any of the race :( but by all accounts it was a good effort. I can definately say that on the way down to the start they looked way better than any of the novice crews around. Particularly the maggie crew with balloons on their bow - wierd no?

Well done girls! keep up the good work (Dami)
This was such a nice row - the girls were looking strong and together, definitely one of the prettiest crews on the river (in every sense!). Nice coxing too :)

Hope you had fun! (Clair)

1. Dom wrapped up warm

Clare Novice Regatta (Cup)

1st round
Beat Wolfson A easily
There was never any doubt about who was going to win this race. Our girls were ahead after the first stroke and kept ploughing through finishing 5 lengths or so ahead.

Next round is against Jesus and should be a pretty tough race. Hopefully keeping calm and rowing long should see them though.

Best of luck!! (Dami)
2nd round
Lost to Jesus A
Unfortunately beaten by a more... beefy Jesus crew (to put it nicely), who had a very unusual 'half-slide' technique - as Bryn says, he's certainly never seen Clare Novices rowed like that before. It was a really good race, and the girls put in a strong performance considering they were up against a fresh crew. There was a nice push before the railway bridge which gained ground.

Well rowed girls! (Clair)
The girls kept everything together well and rowed very neatly, but were unfortunate to come up against a physically much stronger (and pretty tidy) crew in an early round. Jesus went on to win the competition so there's no(t much) shame in losing to them... At least we rowed at full slide.

A lot of positives to take into Fairbairns - with the vastly improved technique from the second race we have the ability to row the course at a good sustainable pace. (BJ)

Novice Fairbairn Cup (1st division)

7th Women's Novice Crew
Time: 12:28
This was the best rowing I've seen from our novices all term. A strong start meant the girls were gaining on Fitz from the beginning. As soon as their bank party told them to concede the racing line to let us through their 7 rower came off her seat causing stroke to crab and the boat to move out of FaT's way so no time was lost at all:) Taking Chesterton tight in Dom's usual style meant that they also gained on LMBC II. And then under the railway bridge awaited nm1 and nm2 to cheer the girls into the finish.

The way back saw Sorcha gain a few pounds of Dom's clothes - a very attractive look - and Dom do his best to break Peter Brant from the 6 seat but she came home unbroken for the last time this term which made Iain very happy.

Congratulations girls - FaT are never out of the top 10 and you didn't let us down. I'm looking forward to rowing with you next term.

Well rowed! I am proud to have been one of your lbcs this term, you have worked hard and it shows in your rowing. I look forward to seeing you all become valuable members of the senior squad next term :) (Clair)
