4th men's novice VIII
1st NM4, 2nd in NM3 and below
Taking part in The Fairbairn Cup has been a challenging, yet extremely rewarding, experience. I arrived wondering what it would be like to actually do a rowing competition. It was special from the beginning: when the crew moved, we were more synchronised than ever before. Especially at the beginning, everything came naturally and it felt light and surprisingly effortless. As we went on, the tiredness kicked in and my forearms and legs got very soar, but I knew I could not stop until the end. When we got there, I was feeling euphoric. Then the results came in: not only were we the fastest NM4, we also beat every NM3 (including our own) except for the fastest one, which we only missed by 4 seconds! Everyone in the crew, as well as our coaches, was happy, and I think this experience made the bond between us considerably stronger. I really look forward to racing again, this time in a senior crew!

Strong row with a satisfying result to boot - hard to believe they're a novice fourth crew. Just four seconds off Maggie NM3...impressive! Great to see the depth in the squad continuing, even with the past year and a half.
