1st women's IV, Student Senior IVs

did not race
We decided to turn back around Chesterton, as Cath was having problems with some kind of leg cramps. We left her upside down on trestles in the boat bay, so hopefully we'll be able to take her out next week. (Magnus)

1st men's VIII, Student Senior VIIIs

2nd in Men's Students Seniors, 5th Overall
Time: 8:54
Result shows we might not be so far off the pace as we'd perhaps feared, which gives us a good base to work on between now and Fairbairns. We (and Mr Darley on the bank) felt the rating off the start was a tad comfortable, though as it turns out we made it to the first timing point fastest bar one crew. Being slightly less refined in the windy conditions on the reach meant we gave most of this advantage back. (Andy)
A slightly disappointing row, lacking the aggression of last year, although the slow time is due partly to a nasty head wind in the second half. I'd like to think that the 1k times are more representative when comparing crews in different divisions, apparently it was calmer in the morning.

It's encouraging that we weren't soundly beaten, as in the autumn head, and this must be our smallest margin of defeat in this race for a number of years. But the likes of Jesus will be a lot better than the opposition here, so the foot won't be coming off the gas in the next couple of weeks, not even slightly. (Tom C)

2nd men's VIII, Student Novice VIIIs

11th in Student Novices, 65th overall
Time: 10:06
Caius II were 30 seconds faster than us...
But we were rowing in a bathtub.
They've been in that crew for 5 weeks, we have for 5 minutes.
The wind picked up a fair amount by the afternoon.

Ah well, can always make excuses, but it was a good row apart from the wind and a crab 5 strokes from the line, committed power and consistent rhythm. (Lorry)

1st women's VIII, Student Senior VIIIs

5th in Women's Student Seniors, 113rd Overall
Time: 10:56
We did really rather a good burst on the way up, so I expected this race to go quite well. Unfortunately, upon turning around at the lock, we somehow went into an oh-dear-we're-racing mentality, and lost the rhythm which had almost been coming together. We nearly got it back through the Gut and in the first half of the reach, but lost the opportunity to overtake another crew in the second half by panicking slightly as we came close to them, allowing them to push back away from us under the Railway Bridge and into the finish. On the plus side, we coped quite well with the headwind and put in some good pushes out of the corners.

The fact that we were only 9s behind the winners of this category (Emma) with a fairly dismal row, however, is really quite encouraging. (Erica)

1st men's novice VIII, Student Beginner VIIIs

10th in Student Beginners, 133th Overall
Time: 11:15
it was our very first race and a really good experience; some of the rowers felt we finished the race with far too much energy to spare, and in a way thats encouraging, now what we gotta do is work on pacing it nicely so next time we get an amazing time! well done guys, you made it fun to cox because the boat was going fast :) (Jij)
According to PJs calculations we were 10th in our divison but what I think is much more important is how we compared to the other Cambridge crews (who cares about ICL). We were only beaten by 4 other crews (Queen's, Jesus, Caius and Selwyn) but left 8 crews behind us (inc. our own 2nd boat). We were only 33 seconds (PJ's got it wrong here) behind the fastest college boat which means we only need to catch up about 4.5 seconds per person (as mentioned Jij is just dead steering weight).

So guys as long as coach Pancratz keeps those stupid-amount-of-Ks-ergs coming and we (now with different blades) put that pressure down in time on the water we are going to be right up there for Fairbairns. Go NM1!! (S.C. Mertes)

2nd men's novice VIII, Student Beginner VIIIs

15th in Student Beginners, 175th Overall
Time: 12:02
Pressuring Caius nth boat all the way down to the start was fun, with some excellent coxing by Emma. Lads looked good and it wasn't even that cold.

The rolling start was delayed slightly because of said Caius boat spakking about on first post reach, but went well once the marshal allowed us to go. Heads were up, blade work in the water fairly pleasing.

Corners were excellent - bow four and cox working very well with good power laid down by stern four. Legs push down Plough Reach picked the rating back up after Grassy (24ish), and similarly after Ditton.

I was impressed by the commitment on The Reach given the work already laid down. Forearms were starting to go (I told you!) leading to sloppier squaring/ bladework. That said, we only had two crabs in the race and both times the crew recomposed within five strokes.

I think they were the second fastest second novice crew after Queens', beating Magdalene first novices and comfortably thrashing other seconds. Definitely have it them to row as a first boat, with two lengths to find in the catches and suspension before Clare Novices. Bring it. (Dan)

WE ARE BETTER THAN BRYN...FACT!

Well done girls...an awesome start to our boatie careers :) And seeing as we haven't got the times through yet, we are still undefeated on the water! I think we did really well, we rowed good and Sarah did some great coxing. Go us! (Charley)
The claim that you're better than me clearly isn't a reference to your grammar: you rowed well, not good. (BJ)
I bank partied the girls for their first chance to prove themselves on the water, after the heady heights of Queens' Ergs success. With some awesome lines from Sarah and tidy, powerful rowing from the crew, they closed on Magdalene (men!) ahead for the whole race. A good result (beaten only by Selwyn in the college stakes), and there's certainly a lot more to come from this crew. (Erica)
