This one was tough. On Sunday, September 18th the first competitive Catz quad for many years (if not the first ever) took to the River Witham in Lincoln for a brutal 31-mile battle against cramp, blisters and pond weed. A strong first leg down to Bardney Lock saw us easing past others in our division, even with Matt's zig-zag approach to some of the straight sections. Things started to get gritty after the lock, with cramp and blisters setting in. Both were here to stay and over the next two hours wore us down, with only Basile's cracked pepper crackers and inspirational speeches about all the electrolytes we would get at the finish to keep us going. At the 40km mark we rallied, perhaps in part due to Will's singing (album dropping soon), blasting past singles, quads and eights alike. Dragging what must have been a small forest of pond weed from the rudder we made it through the finish having shed blood, sweat and (mainly on my part) tears.
St Catharine’s College Boat Club is looking to appoint head coaches for both their Men’s and Women’s squads, starting October 2016.
Founded in 1833, the club is ambitious and possesses a rich rowing history. With its own facilities, a modern fleet and driven young athletes, it aims to compete at both college and national events.
Please see the attached document for further details.
After three years of no bumps in Mays, and 2 and half years since the last time Catz W1 has ever bumped we finally did it. We caught King's. We said we would and we delivered; on plough reach to be exact. It now leaves us as the sandwich boat of division 1. So a fantastic way to end this year of rowing and hopefully the start of some more bumps!
