Quarter finals
Lost to Caius II by (?) lengths
We were certain to win this race easily, it is only Caius II after all. However we lost. (Ahmad)
In the battle for Trinity Street, the irresistible force of Caius met the immovable object of First and Third in a race that will go down in history as one of the many rowing races that happened that weekend. There were old scores to be settled: scores such as '2 lengths' and 'easily' that have happened in previous years. It was decided that Caius won for this year at least, and indeed at most. (Pete)
Semi finals
Lost to Magdalene by 1 1/2 lengths
We heard that Magdalene had lost spectacularly in their first round. So we thought they should be a beatable opponent.
Near the start line, I take one look at them and I see 8 body builders ready to race with us. But we never lost faith because physical strength is not everything in this sport. So we raced as hard as we could but it did not work. (Ahmad)
In Round 2, the giants of Magdalene met the titans of First and Third, making them both seem normal-sized. Magdalene won this time.

Looking ahead to June, each crew will be rowing several times and in various combinations, each bump of it massively mattering to someone, presumably. There's so much rowing going on, it is impossible to keep up with all the rowing, but your best chance is here. (Pete)
