1st round
Beat Fitzwilliam B easily
NM3 were a length ahead by half way through the start, pulled to a bit more then 3 lengths of clear water, then held it at that distance for the rest of the race. Things got a bit sloppy towards the end as people got tired, but all told a good race. Kate held a great line the whole way. (Jack)
2nd round
Beat LMBC D by 2 lengths
Tricky conditions meant that NM3 veered off towards the meadows on the first ten strokes, but some snazzy coxing and a very sharp looking wind meant that they recovered well. The two crews were well matched and more-or-less level as they reached cruising speed, but the boys fought hard and remained calm, pushing LMBC back to about half a length and gradually pulling away.

Under the railway bridge an excellent line gave them clear water and they pushed again to finish a few lengths clear.

Well done lads (and lass)!! (Emma)
Quarter finals
Lost to ARU B Easily
They were big. But we recovered well, taking it through to the finish line with some nice rowing. Good work, boys. (Penelope)
Most strokes wins, but not on this occasion - the rate was a little over-optimistic and ARU were very good. A good effort to get to the quarters but the more measured environment of Fairbairns will suit this crew better. (Neil T)
