The Club's Results

Robinson Head, Lent Term 2009

The Gents (1st division)

Coxed by: Emma Smith

Won lower boats category
Time: 9:53
I can't tell you how gratifying it is to actually win, instead of just talking about how great an effort we made. We found a good rhythm, and took energy from storming past Magdalene (not to mention Ming's "motivational" shout). The power is still not what it might be but there's time left.

There's a huge amount of work still to do before bumps if we want to go up, but this is definitely a great result at this point.

Massive thank you to Fordy for jumping in, and to Emma who coxed as though she was drunk on the way up but took gorgeous lines in the race itself.
Thanks also to Peterborough City Rowing Club, because if they hadn't cancelled Nene we would have been rowing in a bathtub.

I guess this is what happens when Ming is involved with your crew! (Charles)
Yeah Buddy!

Not much more to say, only that we thought we'd only rowed O.K. and still won lower boats, we can do so much better. This is a solid platform to build off, we just need to up the rate and put some serious power down. Ain't nothin' to it but to do it! (Aaron)
Hell yeah! A committed, chunky and gutsy row. As Aaron said, we thought we'd done okay but perhaps not well enough to beat all the 2nd VIIIs! Fantastic stuff boys!

A big thanks Pete and Emma for jumping in for us and also to Ming and Ali for the motivational calls down the reach that really lifted us.

We've got the potential to be so much faster and this race gives a great platform to build on. (Jeffrey)
