The Club's Results

Head of the Nene, Lent Term 2008

2nd men's VIII (Senior3 VIIIs)

Coxed by: Emma Smith

7th in S3, 20th overall, 3rd Cambridge College
Time: 19:23
Ok on the first 2k or so, went downhill from there. Especially overtaking Clare 2 was messy and should have taken 15 long hard strokes instead of about 60 crap ones. On the positive side, Lorry did win the blade clash pretty convincingly.

The rate more or less held 30 but we lost the length in our strokes.

We beat Wolfson by 1 min 11 sec and they looked pretty shit. Bumping by First Post as usual then in a couple of weeks. (S.C. Mertes)
The first 2k or so was good.
The rest wasn't so great. We should have nailed clare rather than pissing around beside them.
Technique, especially when tired is something we are going to have to work on

I reckon we could have been competitive with fitz I.

Room for improvement, but a solid result. (Thomas)
We were entered in nov 8+'s... so why our result was s3 i guess we shall never know (would've come 2nd, so it doesn't really matter)

PS Good row, luckily bumps is only 2k

PPS I apologise to the Clare 4 man, you need to work the guns. (Lorry)
