SCCBC performed well in the Fairbairns races at the end of the Michaelmas term last week, with 6 crews competing.
Thursday saw two novice men's crews compete and one novice women's crew. NM1 had the standout performance, finishing 3rd out of all novice crews. Not to be outdone, NM2 were the 4th fastest 2nd novice boat. NW1 also put in a strong midtable performance. Of course the real measure of a successful novice term though is how many stay on as seniors, and based on this term's keenness it's looking optimistic.
On Friday it was the seniors' turn to take to the water, with another 3 crews competing. M1 finished as the 13th fastest college crew, well in the mix with their surrounding crews in the Lents. M2 were the 7th fastest 2nd boat, beating several M1s, crucially including Hughes Hall, whom they are being chased by in the Lents. Finally W1 raced in the IV's division and finished 10th.
Whilst the majority of these results are not spectacular, this term has seen some solid groundwork laid. With the integration of the very promising novice squads with the seniors, I see no reason why Catz can't defend the Marconi Cup from last year's Lents!
A few months late, but here is a video showing how our week went. Great memories!
Soon to arrive at Catz, recently arrived, or just looking to get involved with the boatclub?
Most people rowing at Catz started out as complete Novices, and learn throughout their time here - but those who have rowed before are also more than welcome. Find out more at the above link.
Make sure to have a look out for our stands at the Freshers Squash, where you can find out more information, sign up to the mailing list, and have your try at sprinting on a rowing machine.
We'll also be having a BBQ at the Boathouse at some point over the first weekend of term (11th or 12th October) - pop down for a burger, some tuition on the ergs, and hopefully a trip onto the river in our tub (a really stable boat for learning in).
We look forward to meeting you soon!
