Winter league

After the third and final leg, our overall results are:

* IM3 men: 6th equal overall in 30:20

* Novice men: clear winners of the, errm, novice men category in 34:25

* W IM3: 37:30 (4/4)

* Mx 2x (Steven / Katherine): 38:36

* W Nov: 40:00 (4/8: Robs J / Champs J / 99 (Dotty) / Chesterton / Cantabs (F&J) / Cantabs (Darcy) / St Mary's / Rad)

* M Nov 1x (Keith): 45:24


Since there was discussion on fb, we have some historical results too:

2014 - 9th (09:28, 09:28, 10:05)

2013 - 21st (11:08, 11:00, 10:20)

2012 - 28th (11 somethings, 10:40)

2011 - didn't enter

2010 - didn't enter

2009 - didn't enter

2008 - 3rd (a somewhat anomalous year; due the CRA stubborness, we were technically entered as S3 and S4, and not allowed to count as one crew; but we would have been third. Note only two legs that year).


Revise this a bit later; presently the rest refers to after leg 2

Legs 1, and 2 so far. Results (and leg 2) show our IM3 crew at 5th overall; here's the top ten:

  1. Cantabs IM2 09:42 08:59 18:41
  2. Cambridge 99 IM2 10:04 09:09 19:13
  3. RRBC IM3  10:23 09:24 19:47 [up one]
  4. Cambridge 99 IM3 4x 10:09 09:50 19:59 [down one]
  5. Chesterton IM3 10:40 09:42 20:22 (leg 1 at the start; leg 2: from towpath by SE; brief bit near railway bridgetedious riggercam video of William)
  6. Cantabs M2 IM3 10:50 09:34 20:24 [up from 8]
  7. Cambridge 99 IM2 10:47 09:41 20:28
  8. Leys/RRBC 11:02 09:47 20:49 [up from 10]
  9. CCRC IM3 10:59 09:54 20:53
  10. X-Press XP1 11:05 09:51 20:56 [into the top 10]
  11. Cantabs Hills Road J18  10:44 10:26 21:10 [down from 6]

That's quite pleasing. Tabs 2 have significantly upped their game over leg 1; we'll need to strive to hold them off. We just exceeded 1:30 briefly at the start. Most of the top crews took a minute off their leg 1 times in leg 2; the weather switched from a headwind in leg 1 to a tailwind in leg 2, stronger in the later divisions.

The men's novices are doing well too, after 2 legs we're a minute ahead:

  1. Chesterton M N 12:20 #31 [leg 2: 12:20 10:52 23:12, #27] (tripod cam video from leg 2; or from the bank by Simon L)
  2. Cambridge 99 M N 12:38 #40 [not in leg 2]
  3. Champion of the Thames (Gay) M N 12:57 #54 [leg 2: 12:57 11:14 24:11 #37]
  4. St Neots M N 13:44 #94 [leg 2: 13:44 12:02 25:46 #76]
  5. Cambridge 99 M N 15:16 #137= [leg 2: 15:16 11:21 26:37 #92]
 The men's novice crew just before the off, looking keen, as well they might: still leading the men's novice category, now by a minute!

Our W IM3 VIII are at (13:12 12:02 25:14) behind IoE, Robs, 9s and Champs, and were ahead of Cantabs * 2, but those have vanished in leg 2. The W Nov VIII have (14:17 12:54 27:11), 5/8 (video from leg 2)

Steven and Katherine are currently at #76 (tied with Sarah Airey!) with 13:43 12:16 25:59.

And lastly Keith Lee is holding the Chesterton Sculling Crown at #129: 16:51 14:13 31:04.
