2nd men's IV (Student Senior IVs)
Coxed by: Emma Salgård Cunha
6th College IV+
We set off into this race with something to prove. The other IV may have been bigger than us, but littler guys with technique can still move a boat fast. Despite another crew getting in our way (despite valiant steering and screaming from Emma), I think we had a good, strong race. After a bit of a harried start (great marshalling, Cantabs!) we settled into a rate ~31 paddle. Admittedly a bit lower than we wanted, but chunky. After our forced restart at Ditton we set off with more power and a slightly higher rate than before - pushing past the offending crew in another 15 seconds and strong through the finish. First IV - watch out!
