The Club's Results

Champion of the Thames Eights Head, May Term 2012

2nd women's VIII (Women's 3rd Div. Mays)

Coxed by: Katherine Olley


Time: 7:00
Not a bad first race given the crew hadn't rowed together before and the mixture of experience in the boat.

We got off to a great start, calmly surging the rate up and sticking at around 33/34 coming into Ditton. We relaxed into a good low 30s stride for the rest of the race.

Katie's coxing was absolutely formidable, especially through the tough headwind, and her call for a reset at the kink gave us the focus we needed to keep it together down the reach. She kept the fire burning through the final stages with some great power calls.

Not a great time on the stopwatch, of which the wind is partially to blame, but a good effort for a first race together. Some serious improvements to the finishes and catches will need to be made ahead of Mays if we are to get the results we are capable of. (Angela)
