Light IV with a vengeance, College IVs

1st
Time: 11:49.8
All came together and we did what we planned on the start line - won.

I agree with Andy's sentiment; winning pots is far superior. When we tried to drink out of our scarves it was a total disaster. (Dan)
Well, coxing a light IV, I don't get much more redundant than that :-) Took a minute or so to get together, understandably given everyone's excursions in the race before. Thereafter, the crew coped very well with the conditions and extra weight. Solid performance. Got scarfs (scarves?) instead of pots. Nice change, but I guess I'm a bit of a traditionalist.

edit: exertions, not excursions... (Andy)
A confession is needed here. I thought that the Jesus and Downing entries might be their light fours, so this could've been a chance for payback. Thus, totally against the spirit of the competition, we had a practise outing on Wednesday to set the boat up correctly. With this advantage it's hardly surprising that we won by 25 seconds, even though the legs didn't allow the rate to go much over 32.

At least 1) we were man enough to race it, unlike the eights that beat us, and 2) we did pretty well at keeping the blades in the water longer, which was our technical aim for the race. (Tom C)

1st women's IV, Senior IVs

won!
Time: 13:22.7
I think this race was pretty good proof of why it is preferable to have outings. Although we'd remembered how to row together by Chesterton, we were also by that stage VERY tired. We managed to hold it together though, and there were some committed pushes despite the spack. And anyway, who cares, cos we won!!!

ps has anyone seen a dead duck somewhere near Chesterton?? (Jane)
Obviously feeling the effects of the morning's VIII race, not to mention the lack of any IVs training for a few weeks, the start was a bit tentative, and King's had a 2.3 second lead (6:02.9 to 6:05.2) at Chesterton Footbridge with LMBC also ahead and Newnham just 0.1 sec behind. Then Magnus told the girls they were all lazy bitches, and they responded with a perfect demonstration of negative fade racing as with push after push the rate and speed increased consistently to the finish to secure a win by a commanding 13 seconds. Excellent stuff, just don't try it in the Bumps! (Neil T)
