Champion of the Thames Eights Head, May Term 2009

3rd men's VIII (Men's 3rd Div. Mays)

Coxed by: Sarah Stoneman

4th in M3, 29th overall
Time: 5:27.2
A decent race, with a very powerful start at rate 41. Lost some speed at the end of the reach but picked it up again for the finish. Rated 32 for most of the race. If we can manage to hold the speed a little better over 1 to 1.5k we should be fine for bumps.

Good points to take away:
1. A (fairly) stable boat with no water in it when we took it to heads
2. A lot better rowing than the last outing (apparently)

We were faster than the boats directly behind us in Mays (7s Churchill II, 17s Fitz II) however also 13s and 18s slower than the two boats behind them (Magdalene II and Christ's II). None of the boats within a sensible distance in front of us in Mays entered. (S.C. Mertes)
If the race was only to Ditto corner, we may have won... Lots of room for improvement! (Lorry)
