1st women's VIII (Student Novice VIIIs)

Coxed by: Mark McKelvie

3rd Women's Novice VIII, 5th College Women's VIII
Time: 10:40
After a overenthusiastic start the crew quickly regained control, and held together with only minor lapses. By Ditton Corner they had caught up with a slower X-Press crew which impeded their line (though to be fair this is OK under the rules) and blade-clashed them before the finish line. The girls held together through the wash, and overtook in the last stretch of the race.

The only college women's VIIIs that posted faster times were a Christs' VIII which rowed twice, and two (I suspect actually one) Jesus VIIIs. (Magnus)
A good time, which I'm relieved about, given that I seemed to take the scenic route for quite a distance up Long Reach and I forgot to restart just after Ditton (sorry!)
Grassy seemed OK, but now I need to work on trying to take those corners slightly tighter, and also trying to refrain from shouting.....
Great work nonetheless girls! The rhythm felt generally very good and it was nice moving along at that sort of speed. (Mark)
