1st men's VIII, 1st division

1st overall
Time: 6:48
The best thing about this race was that it was pretty bad, yet we still beat all the 'slow colleges' by quite a way. In Bumps M1 clearly has nothing to fear from behind, the focus is all about how far up the charts they can move. The race was supposed to be focussed on cementing the changes we'd suddenly made last outing. Instead, Catz M1 caught a crab in First Post Corner and it quickly became all about getting past them as safely and efficiently as possible. Rather unhelpfully we went a little wide around Grassy coming into an overtake manoeuvre with overlap on the inside line, luckily Matt's forearms just about survived tanking us around. Down Plough Reach it was get past them or lose the line around Ditton, so we got past them...just. We had to couple a push with some slightly aggressive cutting up to rescue the corner. By this point everything was a frantic mess and all people seemed to care about was doing what they could to fuck off into the distance...no cohesion. Perhaps a saving grace, once we'd struggled up to the kink everybody committed to building for the finish and we got a little surge in speed and a stupid "We <3 Newnham" t-shirt for our efforts. We're capable of going a lot faster; bring on Bumps. (Thornton)

4th men's VIII, Lower VIIIs

11th lower VIII; fastest M4
Time: 8:24
We had a plan to chain at 28, a reasonable plan for an M4. Turns out we don't like 28, we much prefer short slide 32 instead. A really committed race in parts, as the result shows (11th M3/M4/M5). Well steered by Catarina for her first time taking the Bumps Line at rate - not even close to crashing! With a bit of technical work we'll be able to move the boat far more efficiently, and hopefully retake our permanent position in Lents. (Thornton)
