W1 Champs Head 2011

Last week W1 raced in the Champs Head, a race for all crews to get an idea of where they stand for May Bumps as they draw closer.
Despite appallingly windy conditions, the crew held together really well, coming second in the Mays W2 division and fourth overall out of all college women’s crews: a terrific performance for a crew containing three ex-novices! These results shows how our hard work has paid off, and that we are set to do really well come May Bumps.

Head to Head 2011

At the start of May W1 competed in the Head to Head, which involves rowing two legs of 2k (spinning in between). This race was a chance for us to see how much we had developed as a crew, having had a big reshuffle after the Easter Vacation. Overall we did quite well, beating a few other W1 crews such as King’s and First and Third. Most importantly, however, we showed that after only a few outings together we have a solid basis to build up on as we continue training this term.
