The Club's Results

Sparring against CULRC, Lent Term 2009

1st men's VIII (Cup)

Coxed by: Emma Salgård Cunha
Coached by: Jon Davies, Tom Rose,

1) 2000m race. Went down a bit off the start but held it level for a minute or so. By 1k we were maybe 3/4 of a length behind. The rest is history, suffice to say we lost by a considerable margin.

2) Middle 1k. This time we rowed properly and there was no noticeable difference between the crews.

3) First 500. An abomination which didn't end soon enough.

4) Last 500. Good until the wind, where they left us behind.

In summary it was about the opposite of last year; they knew how to race and we didn't. At 34-36 there wasn't much difference, but they had an extra gear or two whereas our cruising speed was also our maximum speed. (Tom C)
