The Club's Results

City Sprints, May Term 2006

Grad VIII (Mens Lents Division 3)

Coxed by: Amelia Russell

Quarter finals
Beat Tit Hall 2 (half a length)
Decent start, plenty of power, but a bit frantic. The stride managed to improve the rythym but also increase the rating somehow. It seemed more or less half a length all the way from the start.

I imagine Tit Hall 2 will be at least a division above us in bumps, so pretty good result. (Neil)
We had them right from the start. There was loads of power and little finesse but we got to the line first and that's all that matters in the end. :) (Amelia)
Semi finals
lost to Jesus 4 (1/4 length)
Pretty poor start, so us give them a length head start. We spent the rest of the race gaining on them but ran out of river. Had a close encouter with the bank near the end.

Hopefully some outings with the same crew order and some start practice and we'll be ready to tear up the fourth division! (Neil)
I'm sure the course favours the crew on the common side, and we were unlucky to be drawn on the boathouse station. Jesus M4 took it hard off the start while we took a little while to get going and they opened out a lead of over a length. Over the course we steadily came back at them, but their superior start and the fact that they steered right over onto our side meant that they just pipped us to the finishing post. Another 50m of course and I'm confident we'd have been in the final.

Once the crew has had some more outings together and some practice at starts we'll be flying! (Amelia)
