2016 saw the dawn of a new era, and unsurprisingly on the men's side it continued; Maggie were very fast. Clare bumped up two (Pembroke; Caius, still looking nice but under powered) but couldn't touch Maggie despite having two attempts. Saturday saw LMBC two cementing their place in div 1 just opposite the John's beer crowd, pretty well where their M1 got headship last year. Christ's got blades and a welcome return to M1.
On the women's side Downing got spoons, falling to Caius on Wednesday who had their day in the sun before falling to Jesus on Friday, who rowed over head on Saturday.
As last year, this is mostly for me to record links to my vidz:
See-also the fb group Cambridge Mays 2017. Chaos pic for this year is:
That stretch of river is lovely, lovely. When it's not full of blasted rowers and their hangers-on :-)
(but I get it more-or-less to myself 300+ commutes of the year, so I'm not really complaining).
[Indeed. And it's fairly quiet now, in time for the town bumps -W]
Love the chaos pic, reminds me of head of the charles. We're having the first Interior Alaska regatta this weekend and it's probably been a decade since I've been in a shell, wish us luck at least the water is warm this time of year.
