The Club's Results

Pembroke Regatta, Lent Term 2012

1st men's VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: Penelope Jenkins

1st round
Beat Magdalene I by 3 lengths
"It wasn't pretty but it got the job done" describes this race well. I was on their 4 man off the start, we broke free around the kink and increased the clear water from there on. "Let's not talk about this race" would be an accurate description of this report. (Penelope)
Quarter finals
Lost to Downing I by 3/4 of a length
"We raced the race we wanted to race". Much more composure, much more patience. They got one seat out of us off the start and gradually moved through to 3, but a successful transition held them there for a while. We are told they broke free before the Railway Bridge, but pushes into and out of the bridge got us back to overlap from where we fought back to only 6 seats down despite sitting in their wash.

Well done, boys! We can justifiably be proud and confident in our abilities. (Penelope)
