Emma Sprints, Mich Term 2013

1st men's novice VIII (Division 1)

Coxed by: Amar Patel

1st round
Beat Clare
This was so much fun. The costumes were a strong effort, especially on Hugh's part, and two coaches asked me if NM1 had a girl subbing in, so it clearly worked!

The race instantly fell into a heavy clash, with a Clare novice getting smacked in the face with a blade. The Clare cox shouted hold it up, and both boats did so, but with both coaches shouting to row on. First and Third rowed on well lengthening their lead all the way. Amar was so keen to win they kept rowing all the way to Ditton before realising the race was over. As they spun, they gently brushed Emma, plopping the bowball right off. Again. Sigh. (Tom)
Quarter finals
Beat Emma NM1
Won against Emma NM1 - I only caught the last 30 seconds or so of the race, but it looked decent. They were ahead by half a length or so with 7 rowers since 4-man's seat broke off half way through! (Barney)
Semi finals
Beat Trinity Hall NM1
Against Tit Hall NM1: Pretty level off the start; as we started to move away Tit Hall went for a tactical blade clash. They came off worst with their 2-man catching an overhead crab. Recovering from this took them about half of the race, by which point we were about 2 or 3 lengths ahead. They came back a bit towards the end but NM1 still won by at least 1 and a half lengths.

Lost to Jesus NM1
Jesus slowly moved away over the first few hundred metres, and then we started having some serious timing issues. These cost us about a length, moving them to about a length and a half up and then their 7-man (I think) caught an overhead crab. Sadly, he was faster at recovering than Tit Hall were, and despite gaining significantly in the last few metres of the race, we lost by a bit under a length. (Barney)
