Clare Novice Regatta, Mich Term 2006

1st men's novice VIII (Cup)

Coxed by: Jij Chow

1st round
Beat Sidney Sussex A easily
Our crew dealt better with the fairly tough headwind conditions, putting distance between the two boats steadily. Shortly after half way, having a good few lengths of clear water, Jij finally asked the crew to take the rate down and to solidly paddle it to the finish line. (Sebastian Pancratz)
Quarter finals
Beat Fitz A by 1 length
After the first few strokes, the Fitz crew was up a seat or two, but by the end of the start both crews were level again. Having had a better stride, our crew managed to walk up to half a length. Quite impressively, the Fitz crew did not give in at all, holding on for almost the entire race, with both crews rising up to this pressure. It was just within the last 20 strokes that our crew managed to pull out to a length, eventually seeing small amounts of clear water. (Sebastian Pancratz)
Well earned, they were strong but you did not break, a fantastic row right until the finish and the pain on your faces said it all right at the end.
Well rowed guys!!! (Martin Y)
Semi finals
Beat Jesus A by 3/4 length
After a slightly better start, our crew was two seats up. This was converted to half a length, which both crews held for about 200m. Then someone in the Jesus crew crabbed and our cew managed to get half a length of clear water. About half way through the race, someone in our crew jammed his seat, allowing Jesus to come back and gain some overlap, which our crew managed to hold on to. (Sebastian Pancratz)
