Fairbairn Cup (Lower VIIIs)

4th 2nd VIII (23rd College VIII)
Time: 16:01.3
The wind picked up in the afternoon, but not enough to give us 40 seconds.

With me ill and a last minute sub for magnus we probably weren't in the best position to race, nevertheless we tried our hardest and were happy with the result.

In response to emma, yes it was some of our best rowing, but if I was well i could've given 10-20% more.

And I would've given anything to have beaten Caius :P (Lorry)
Wow Lorry thats a pretty downhearted take on things! This was our best rowing all term, everyone gave it their all (Will whimpering for the last twenty strokes) and i was really pleased with our time. The first fifty or so strokes especially were brilliant - relaxed, loose but rating high and plenty of power in the water. We really picked it up along first post reach but held it together for a great end to the race. (Emma)
