10th in Student Novice VIIIs
A solid row from NW1 in their first race. We saw some very tidy rowing and stretches with very good boat speed. Unfortunately we did not quite have the consistency to keep this up for all of the race, resulting in the loss to four other college novice crews. The good bits, and indeed Tom's line around the corners, were very encouraging and we'll just have to eliminate mistakes to be very competitive.
Hear hear. Given that it was only our second outing rowing all eight, a fantastic row from all. We perhaps sagged a little through the middle of the race so need to work on pushing hard when the going gets tough, but we still have a couple of weeks to go until the big novice races. With a little (or a lot!) of training this could go very well indeed. The foundations of a pretty rapid crew are there - we just need to get some solid water time in.
