Mich Term 2017

2nd women's novice VIII

Queens' Novice Ergo Competition (1st division)

Emma Sprints (Division 2)

1st round
Lost to Sidney Sussex NW2
Our first race together. A crab caused us to shift to the other side of the river. After recovery, the strokes were really powerful and from the cox's seat we are drawing towards Sidney quickly. Good experience in terms of handling crabs and a hold-it-up during the race. (R. Qiao)
2nd round
Beat Lucy Cavendish NW2
The crew recovered quickly from the previous race and made very powerful strokes even though it was cold and they were tired. The gap between Lucy and us had been quite small but the crew really persevered until the finish and won the race. Well done! (R. Qiao)

Clare Novice Regatta (Plate)

Quarter finals
Beat LMBC NW3 umpires decision
A big shout out to Neil Talbott for reattaching a seat and fixing the LMBC boat to ensure that the race could go ahead. With crews locked together, LMBC's failure to keep to their side of the river meant a quick restart. At their second infringement however, they were promptly disqualified by the marshals as FaT managed to keep their cool during the blade clashes. We were allowed to simulate the rest of the race, and safe in the knowledge that they had the win in the bag, the girls were able to relax a lot more and easily pulled away from LMBC. (A.M.L. Sun)
Semi finals
Beat FaT NW3 easily
After the initial excitement of a FaT/FaT semi-final, both crews settled down for the start of the race. However, the marshals at the start line struggled to differentiate between the two crews, so we were sat there for a while. When the race did finally get started, NW2 were able to find a nice rhythm and steadily opened up a lead, which they managed to maintain despite the best efforts of NW3. (A.M.L. Sun)
Final
Beat Pembroke NW2 by 2 length
We made a clean start, and settled onto a good rhythm. So too, however, had Pembroke, and we were neck and neck three hundred metres in. Keeping their heads in their own boat and maintaining their technique in a tight race, FaT managed to eke out a hard-earned lead. We managed to extend our advantage, and slowly but surely pulled away Pembroke. With the other crew well within our field of view as we passed under the Railway Bridge, one massive final push ensured a well-deserved victory for the girls. Well done everyone - you should be really proud of yourselves! <3 (A.M.L. Sun)

Novice Fairbairn Cup (1st division)

18th, 2nd NW2
Time: 13:25.4
This is a really great result - amongst women's 2nd VIIIs, only our 2003 crew can better it (second 2nd VIII, 15th overall) and three members of that crew went on to win university medals! Congratulations on a fantastic term's rowing. (Neil T)
A fantastic term ended with a fantastic race. The rate was never below 27 and climbed up to 30 at the finish. Pressure steering at corners were really smooth and effective. The timing was great and everyone still kept their technique even after 2k, which was amazing. Minor crabs were recovered before I could say anything. There has been incredible progress from Emma Sprint. Well done everyone!
Thank you Charlene for the racing strategy <3 (R. Qiao)
