Emma Sprints (Division 1)

1st round
Lost to Clare NM1
After the race, Neil Talbott asked the crew "Is there anyone who did not catch a crab in that race?"

(D. Lee)
Can confirm Alex Partridge (Stroke) did not crab in this race. (B.A. Clent)
2nd round
Lost to Wolfson NM1
FaT made a stronger start than Wolfson and were a length ahead at the 150m mark however some synchronised crabs led to them losing by a length in the end. One crab lasted 13 strokes... (B.A. Clent)

Clare Novice Regatta (Cup)

2nd round
Beat Corpus Christi I by 1/2 length
Strong start from FaT, about a length up at the 300m mark. Crab at the 4 seat gained them some ground. But a strong finish from FaT landed us a comfortable win. (looked like much more than half a length in the video of the race...) (B.A. Clent)
Quarter finals
Beat Wolfson I by 1 length
After the Emma Sprints disaster, with FaT NM1 losing to Wolfson NM1 by a length having been a length up originally. FaT were keen to get revenge on the water. Wolfsons scare tactics of having their whole crew shout their start sequence wasn't enough to deter FaTs stronger start. after 200m we were a length up. At the 500m mark Wolfson made a move and gained back a quarter of a length, then a crab at our 2 seat put them only half a length down. But a massive FaT push at the railway bridge left Wolfson to bite the dust as we walked away from them. FaT ended up finishing over a length ahead of the opposition with Matt Walker (7 seat) shouting "REVENGE!" as we crossed the finish line.

Semi finals
Lost to St.Catherine's I by 1/2 length
A clean start with nothing in it between the two crews for the first 150m, then at the 200m mark Catz started to move a little head. One or two mini crabs and some scrappy strokes gave Catz a good lead. At the railway bridge FaT were a length down, but a big push got us back into overlap and we ended up finishing just half a length down. Really strong effort from the boys, the most tidy race of the day.   (B.A. Clent)

Novice Fairbairn Cup (1st division)

Time: 10:17.2
Really solid effort from this crew. Strong rhythm through the middle and a rapid start, It was clear that everyone was exhausted coming through the railway bridge, but they tanked it to the end - and well past it thanks to Jesus' silent marshals.

Absolutely no doubt that 100% was put in by everyone. Hope to see as many of these guys as possible on Training Camp, and rowing with the Senior Squad next term.
Alas, no Kuda this year. Great result nonetheless, very well done! (Neil T)
A great start to the race, followed by a good rhythm call meant the crew quickly settled onto a strong rate 32. Pushes through every corner meant the boat continued to keep speed down the course, and all the crew did very well to hold onto their rhythm and length through the race. A final step up in the rate from the railway bridge helped give a little extra finish speed, and all the crew gave everything they could as the boat approached the line. A final time of 10:17 meant 2nd overall!

A fantastic race from the whole crew, and a performance they can really build off for next term.
