Head of the Cam

16/35 - 2nd in Other Mays - 9:42

It was a beautifully sunny day for the first race of the season, the Head of the Cam race run by Chesterton Rowing Club. Using Emma as our substitute cox, we sat in a massive queue of boats waiting to get up to the start, which didn't help our attempts at getting into a good rhythm. After a bit of sunbathing whilst marshalling at Baitsbite, we were finally ready to start.

Day 4 M2

Rowed Over


AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

We knew we had our toughest ask of the week as the last act. Not only were King's II the fastest crew that we'd chased all week, they were also chasing a spooning Girton II crew who hadn't rowed more than a kilometre combined across their 3 races. The fact that they took in excess of 5 minutes parking at Chesterton didn't do a lot to inspire confidence that they'd be able to hold King's off for long enough.
