The Club's Results

Pembroke Regatta, Lent Term 2008

4th men's VIII (3rd division)

Coxed by: Sarah Stoneman

Quarter finals
Beat Jesus III by inches
Close throughout, won by a very small distance. A bit spacky, but the commitment was definitely there. (Alasdair)
Semi finals
Beat Queens' III easily
They were about a length behind after the start, then they crabbed and easied for a while. We took several more lengths and then paddled it back. (Alasdair)
Final
Lost to LMBC III by 1 length
We were a few seats down after the start, and the power dropped. They had clear water by the railway bridge, and though we started putting more power down towards the end, we were too far behind to catch up.

Overall, it wasn't a bad performance, but we can't afford to lose to third boats if we want to do well in bumps. (Alasdair)
