5th men's VIII

Got on!
The race went OK, the initial drive away from the motorway bridge felt good. A push through the gut and onto the plough reach kept the boat moving well. Turning into the headwind on the reach the speed did drop and rhythm started to go unfortunately, but we held it together OK ish.

We got on... :)

Hopefully rapid starts and early pushes will get us the blades we want... (Thomas)
Good work today guys. A very strong start and a committed row in difficult conditions. Bring on bumps! (Andy S.)

we did it, guys!! couldn't be prouder to be part of Fat W3 - bring on the BUMPS! (Kristina)
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I think we managed to scare all of New Court with our massive scream when we found out! I'm so proud of us, all our hard work and dedication has paid off, now let's get ready to go and kick some ass next week :) We rowed the best we ever have today, so let's keep that going and keep pushing for Morris and doughnuts - I'll buy out Sainsbury's if it'll help! Just think about how much we want those water spades... (Charley)
Amelia, the reason you can't remember how long it's been is that this is the first ever appearance of a FaT W3 crew in the Lents!! Congrats all! (Have checked the bumps archives)
I am so proud of you, girls :o) You've worked so hard for this, you really deserve it! First EVER FaT W3 in the Lents!! (Erica)
OH MY GOD. SO SO SO PROUD! I knew you guys could do it, and even though I was banned from banking you guys (grrrr), I was yelling you on from the inside!
Go out there on Tues, row like you did today and do well. I get to talk all about you in my speech at the dinner so I want bumps galore!!!! Woooooooooooooo! (Lyns)
Amazing... we didn't believe it when we heard... we had to ring Erica to make sure it was true... and unbelievably it was (hence there was a lot of screaming!!!).

Today was amazing girls... "how much do you want it?" was the call... and we wanted it bad!

Lets go bump us some boats!!! (Narelle)
This is amazing!! We put the pressure down, we kept a really good rhythm and now we are in THE BUMPS!!! Not only that, we are officially the best Lent term 3rd womens EVER!!
This is what we worked for, now lets show em what Fat 3W can do!! (A. Sye)
