Fairbairn's IVs 2009

4th fastest college IV

A still winter afternoon greeted the annual Fairbairn's IVs races. The course begins at Jesus flagpole and finishes opposite the Plough, a distance of 3.2km.

After a disappointing 8th in Winter Head we were determined to attack the whole race. Winding to 35 on the start then settling to a solid race rate of 31 enabled the crew to put in a technical but powerful row, finishing 4th in a time of 11:34.42.

This is the best result that the college has achieved in Fairbairn's in a long time and bodes well for the bumps races next term, where - with good training - we are positioned well for a good result.
