After a term plagued with adverse weather and cancelled outings, the girls produced a row today which they can be proud of. Despite the cold weather, false start and last minute changes to the length of the course, the race was consistent and gutsy. Jonathan guided the girls round the first few corners as the initial pain set in. Pembroke attempted to overtake before Chesterton (and were subsequently disqualified) but despite the chaos of the situation the girls held it together well, with heads up and holding the other VIII for about 15 strokes. The pressure was maintained right up to the end, and I can confidently say that NW1 left nothing on the water.
All in all, I don't think the length of the course did the girls justice, as we're strongest over longer distances, but they produced a strong race, and I'm looking forward to the results of senior Fairbairns tomorrow. (ice permitting!) (Julia A.)
