Cambridge Winter League (Jan.)
Race report and results from the first stage of the Winter League, thanks to Julian Haywood Smith:
The highlight was the impromptu regatta race between the WJ18 4x, and the Chris/Kyle double, tearing down the river to the finish bow to bow, with a Cantab Ladies VIII shouting for the Deben Girls, whilst being overtaken on both sides.
The Masters D4+ crew excelled themselves overhauling 'The Happy Rowers' and, most incredibly, scored an identical time as the Masters E4+ boat. A case of honours even, but surely the gloves have to come off now...
Astonishingly, there was another dead heat between Chris in his single and the girls' quad...
Well done to the J18 4x, coming 14th overall out of the 204 entries in the 4 divisions ... big ask to improve that performance over the next 2 months.
And finally, a mention for the WJ15 4x girls in their first competitive event, for finishing the race without undue mishap. A personal best for them all. Great to see so many happy relieved faces at the end, and I'm not just talking about the parents.
