The Club's Results

Pembroke Regatta, Lent Term 2010

1st women's VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: Sonya Milanova
Coached by: Jon Davies, John Earl, Daniel Holland, I. Law,

1st round
Beat Corpus easily
The gap was quickly opened over a Corpus crew, sadly well out of their depth racing a crew 30 places higher in bumps. It is a little silly that there is no system for ensuring smaller clubs get some decent races, making drawing one of the top few clubs a virtual guarantee of first round exit for a smaller one, unless you have a spectacular year.

Quarter finals
beat Murray Edwards by 3 lengths
A fairly neat New Hall (Murray Edwards) crew, having surprised us by beating a Queen's crew that looked good in paddling, held us close until about 400m gone, when they faded. They will do well come bumps. (Thomas)
Semi finals
beat Clare by 2 lengths
A neater start ensured we were competitive throughout the race, and we pulled away coming into the railway bridge, lengthening out to a length clear water by the finish. (Thomas)
Final
beat Christ's by 3 lengths
Delicious. (Mark)
Another fairly good start meant we were fairly competitive through the first part of the race, drawing away towards the finish. (Thomas)
