Coker/Jane, S4 2-

Winners of S4 2-, 2nd of 4 coxless pairs
Time: 11:57
Most importantly we secured the pots. My nasty cold kept the rate down, hence the fairly mediocre time. But we got good boat speed for our work and we didn't hit anything, so we can smile. And we did. (Tom C)

Shepherd/Cunha, S4 2-

3rd of 4 coxless pairs
Time: 12:13
Excellent lines from Pedro, lots of solid spacking, some tidy stretches, and even some powerful strokes were promising signs; the lady's single gaining on us down Plough Reach wasn't. Fortunately our crew pasta weight-gain program paid off as we cruised through the headwind down the Reach, leaving leaner crews for dead. Passing Peter's Posts we bee-lined to the finish, but were twice foiled by the bendy bank. oops (Jacob)

Cunha/Thompson, Mixed S4 2x

4th of 4 mixed doubles
Time: 12:17
We weren't expecting to do very well, having had only 4 practice outings beforehand. However, this was really quite a pleasing row, all things considered. The steering wasn't great, but we managed only to crash once, as well as overtaking a sculler from Nines, coming in only one second slower than the Clare mixed double who started just behind us, and beating several men's doubles. Not the prettiest of sights, but a reasonably respectable time - just wait till we learn how to scull...! (Erica)

Horler/Scott, S4 2-

4th of 4 coxless pairs
Time: 12:36
Well hardly an impressive result. By the gut the rhythm started to feel pretty good, but then we failed to take Grassy altogether. There was no boat damage but it took what felt like an age to get off the bank again. This disrupted us quite a lot and the rowing down Plough Reach was rubbish. Ditton was a stunning corner, James judging it to perfection with the bank only inches from his blade. Our rating wind after Ditton had the desired effect, but after about a minute it started to sag a little. We continued this mediocre rowing up to Peter's Posts which for some reason I thought was the finish and so stopped rowing. We were then told by a marshall that the finish was infact Top Finish, which we then wove our way towards in spactacular fashion. In hindsight its probably a good thing that we incorrectly stopped rowing when we did as we were heading towards the bank.

Our bank party clocked us at about 11:20 to Peter's Posts, which means we spent approx 1:16 sitting about and then crawling towards Top Finish. Not Good. (Phil)

TDC in his single scull, Novice 1x

8th of 13 in N1x, 42nd of 58 men's 1x
Time: 13:24
First attempt at the head course, or indeed any distance greater than 1k. Pleased with the first half - the guy behind (11:48) was a couple of lengths back at Ditton. After that it started to crumble, the wind was a bit gusty down the reach and knocked me over a few times. Then my right arm gave up, and the last 500 was reduced to a light paddle to keep me going in a straight line.

I reckon I lost 10-15 seconds going wide round the corners, but the main issue was falling apart towards the end. So let's do some longer pieces in training. (Tom C)
