lost to Hughes Hall
We kept on rowing and according to those watching the race we were were catching up, but it was almost impossible to win this race after the unfortunate start.
Hughes Hall A ended up winning the cup.

lost to Wolfson, 3 lengths
Once they were back on their side of the river, they continued to extend their lead, but the girls put in a good effort and held on to them, really making Wolfson work to maintain their lead.
Ultimately, it was a very nicely rowed race, but our lack of experience at rate showed through. Fortunately, this shows us what we need to focus on in the week before Fairbairns!

lost to Emmanuel B, easily
After a neat and technical row up, we did lose a bit of length to Emma off the start. The girls held on and kept it together, but Emma powered through and took the lead, which the held on to and extended down the course.
Overall, a very good row from a crew who only had one outing working on rowing above a paddle. There was a little bit of panicking, but generally the girls rowed nicely together.
We've got a very good foundation with neat, technical rowing, which will hopefully prove to be to our advantage come Fairbairns.
