The Club's Results

Mich Term 2019

1st men's novice VIII

Clare Novice Regatta (Men's Cup)

Lost to Caius NM1
We knew this was the race - both crews on this side of the semis were faster than the other semi finalists. Unfortunately, NM1 had met quite the match. Both crews were even in the first few hundred meters of the race but a mini-crab caught followed by a few (or quite a few?) bad strokes meant Caius pulled out to maybe a quarter of length of clear water. 

The boys never gave up and a push around the inside corner meant we pulled to maybe a quarter of length of overlap by the finish, but it was sadly not enough. Still, very high level of racing from NM1 (much improved from their rowing at Emma!) and a mentality which bodes well for all of their futures!

Novice Fairbairn Cup (1st division)

5th NM1
Time: 10:28
We started strong as we rowed through the first few points. However an unfortunate blade malfunction midway caused a slowdown of ~44 seconds. To our luck, our worst crab happened not during the race but two strokes into the paddle back to the boathouse. All in all an OK result, however we easily won the unofficial competition for best crew outfits. 

It has been a pleasure training with NM1 and I can't wait to see what next term will bring.
