Mays 2011 M1 Day 1

Bumped LMBC

After a strong start, the whistles came as we approached First Post Corner, and we caught LMBC around Grassy Corner.  Bring on day 2!

Mays 2011 - W2 Day 1

Bumped St Edmund's

Mays 2011 - W1 Day 1

Bumped Girton

We got foliage!

After the disappointing result in Lents we have seen massive changes within the W1 squad with a new coach, Siggi Martinsson, bringing a fresh approach to both our water and land sessions. The whole women’s club enjoyed circuit sessions on Jesus green, whilst the W1 boat were introduced to 6 km, lock to lock pieces – certainly felt like we were being whipped into shape!

Mays 2011 - M2 Day 1

Bumped FaT III

After having lost 14 places over the last 4 years, M2 were determined to bring this run to an end. The row down to the start was sloppy, but what was more worrying was that First and Third, who had been rowing up immediately behind us, never appeared around Grassy corner. It turns out that Caius couldn't wait for a potential headship push later in the week to bump a FaT crew, and so ploughed into them doing a practice start, snapping their strokeman's blade and breaking the rudder.

Lents 2011 - M2 Day 4

Rowed Over

The aim for today was simple. Row over, and deny Caius III their blades on what could turn out to be a very successful day for their club. Unfortunately, the practice starts suggested that this could be a tough order, coupled with the fact that they were fresh from three easy bumps, whereas we had drained ourselves almost bumping Hughes Hall yesterday.
