Cambridge Winter Head, Mich Term 2022
1st women's VIII + M.F. (Student First VIIIs)
Coxed by: Emily Man
If you were watching W1's first Winter Head race, you may have been wondering who the strange bearded man was in the 2 seat. Due to some last minute illness, we had to draw on the depths of the First and Third's experience; our huge women's squad of one and a half boats yielded no one willing to sit behind Matilda's backsplash, so we were forced to call upon FaT veteran Máté Fehér - cox and rower supreme - to carry W1 to a sub 13 minute race, a difficult feat considering our previous effort at Autumn Head. Starting the race off at a steady rate 36, we were able to maintain a high rate throughout, finishing with a time of 10:16.4, beating our second race and truly justifying the moniker of 'W1(a)'. Despite losing to half of the river, we were happy to see that we finished 20 seconds before Christ's W1 - our nemesis during Bumps last year - putting us in good stead for our campaign next term. We were also glad to see that we beat our first novice men's eight, unlikely as a result of our technique, but rather because of their cox's line going around Ditton Corner. On a more serious note, if W1 can figure out how to catch in time, Bomber has predicted a top 5 finish for Fairbairns, so we look forward to seeing you all there to cheer on FaT's most technical crew.
