The Club's Results

University IVs 2006

1st men's IV (1st division)

Coxed by: Andy Wong
Coached by: Neil Talbott, Will Thorne,

1st round
beat Trinity Hall II by 100m
Our final week's preparation was disrupted by the last minute substitution of Pedro Cunha for Darren Anderton and the breaking of our rudder on Saturday, so we were unable to do many long pieces. We quite fancied doing one today, but unfortunately the safety car came out just before grassy and we had to paddle through the plough reach at 28 going down to 24 before being allowed to overtake on the reach.

In other news, Darren slipped into the river while trying to get out of the boat by the lock, much to the amusement of all who saw. (BJ)
Andy's hands may as well have been taped up like pig trotters and we still would have won. (Dan Newton)
What are you going to do when Sicknote suffers his bidiurnal hamstring twinge before tomorrow's race? (Neil T)
Technically, I have raced at 2 before... (Andy)
100m is not easy. Apparently. (Phil)
Quarter finals
lost to Christ's by 14s
The dream is dead. Long live the dream.

If this had been a competition based on whose college represented more of the faces of God then we'd have been home and dry; unfortunately it was about rowing and the better crew won.

Darren managed to get out of the boat and back in again on two occasions without getting wet. (BJ)
Not a bad row by any means. We probably could have gone quicker, but not 14 seconds quicker. By the sounds of things we were about a length or so down on them coming into Ditton, at which point we hit the cross wind and obviously failed to cope with it as well as them. I think the uncomfortable conditions suited them a little better than us (they relying more on grunt than anything else), but even in perfect conditions we would still have lost, just not by quite as much. (Phil)
