The Club's Results

Cambridge Winter Head, Mich Term 2007

2nd men's VIII (Student Senior VIIIs)

Coxed by: Emma Smith

22nd mens 8+ overall, 13th college 8+, 1st college 2nd 8+
Time: 9:10
We had a massive bank party, again. This made Emma put on her enthusiastic face and yell at us all the way through the race which we really needed.

Held rate 32 which felt easy and looked relaxed till first post when things started to go a little. The push out of the corner on the legs really moved the boat and the speed came back up. Out of Grassy we did 10 suspension which also gave us another boost in speed.

The reach took forever with us consistently moving up on Imperial. The wind from the railway bridge felt like we were really bringing up the rate but actually only got 1 pip, ie we took it up on the slide, AGAIN... with no substantial change in boatspeed.

Overall not a bad base from which to get even faster till Fairbairns. From what I can get out of the results, we beat Jesus, Darwin, Christs, Girton and Queens 1st 8s and more importantly Caius 2nd 8 by 7 seconds. (S.C. Mertes)
