The Club's Results

Pembroke Regatta, Lent Term 2008

2nd women's VIII (2nd division)

Coxed by: Mark McKelvie

1st round
Beat Queens II, by 8 lengths
Solid start but despite being slightly slower on the start we ate away their early advantage and were up by 1 length before we finished our start. Continuous opening of the gap from there (Mark)
2nd round
Beat Kings II, by a mass of clear water
Similar to the race against Queens II, this was also a good performance, producing a gap of at least 10 lengths towards the end. (Mark)
Quarter finals
Lost to Jesus II, by 3 lengths
Probably the best performance out of the three, the rhythm was very solid and a lot of speed was being produced. The balance was good, and the rating, despite being an average of 33/34 throughout the race, felt good.
Lost to a strong Jesus crew who were physically bigger, yet we held their advance from around the railway bridge to 3 lengths and didn't let them have anymore, and in fact were gaining on them about 100m before the bridge.
Do that again in Bumps, and I will be shocked if we don't bump every day. (Mark)
