201st, 59th of 139 IV+
Time: 21:16
Conditions were good on the first half of the course, then into headwind and lumpy water round Hammersmith. Overall result satisfying although nothing extraordinary. We need to up the pace for the rest of the term if we want to win Fairbairn's, Downing's 1st IV for example beat us by 12s. (Flo)

Fairbairn Cup - IVs (College IVs), Stern IV

1st
Time: 11:11.31
Gutsy row some two hours after the eights race. We had an 'interesting' start with tremendous balance issues, consequently nearly crashing into the Jesus four that was parked outside their boathouse. Managed to get our act together though and put in a very good performance. Especially given we only had one outing in this crew. (Flo)
The pre-race chat was that Peterhouse had four guys pulling sub-18 for 5k. This time last year I could've achieved that with a brisk paddle; now it might be out of reach altogether. Our start was only slightly better than Jesus's, but we almost immediately renovated the rowing to car-crash standard. After a couple of minutes it felt like we'd remembered how to row in a four, and the rest of the race was fairly powerful.

Obviously the result is much too close for comfort, but no-one will remember that. (Tom C)
