Cambridge Head to Head
The first race of 2013 for the senior women was Cambridge Head to Head.
Looking forward to a paddle along the sunny, picturesque Cam, the women’s coxed four set off for their race.
Head to head takes the interesting form of having two 2k legs, with a short break and spin in the middle. This made for a good test of the women’s endurance, and doing 2 x 2k twice provided the ideal opportunity to test out crew orders.
Unfortunately, the WIM1 4+ did not have competition, but posted the fastest time for a women’s coxed four for the day. The next fastest time for a women’s coxed four (besides ourselves) was 17:55, a whole 48 seconds slower.
They also beat over thirty eights (including men’s eights!).
The WIM2 4+ went on to win their division and have pots awarded to them – well done ladies!
The crews and results were:
17:07 WIM1 4+ S Emma Raynor, 3 Lisa Meegan, 2 Tasha Scott, B Emma Tod, C Aimee Muirhead
17:14 WIM2 4+ S Tasha Scott, 3 Emma Tod, 2 Emma Raynor, B Lisa Meegan, C Aimee Muirhead
Many thanks to Aimee for coxing, and for the support from Dave and Chris.
Also, thanks to Xpress Boat Club for lending us their four to row in.
