Emma Sprints, Mich Term 2012

Viper (Division 1)

Coxed by: Tony Song

1st round
Beat Magdalene NM1
On arriving at the boathouse, we found the NM2 had not left the elf hats out for us. This meant we couldn't contemplate losing in the first round, being the only crew not in fancy dress. This was quite an eventful regatta given that Jamie was injured after a collision with another boat on the row down and the cox box wasn't working so despite me shouting at the top of my voice, bow 4 couldn't hear anything. During the race, we were clearly the faster crew but we certainly didn't make it easy for ourselves with many crabs from everyone and Matt, who was subbing in, had his foot straps come off. Every time we had a couple of clean strokes, we would pull ahead several seats, but the crew kept the audience in suspense all the way to the finish by crabbing over the finish line. ( Song)
Quarter finals
Lost to Christ's NM1
This race was much better than the first, although there still were quite a few crabs and Matt stopped rowing again due to his foot straps coming off. Despite the loss, this was a good experience which we can take into Clare Novices. ( Song)
