Last Sunday (15th February), FCBC had its first off-Cam race of the term with a trip to Bedford for M1, M2 and W1. After enduring the X5 bus, it turned out to be a very successful day. The Bedford Head is raced on the Great River Ouse and was a 2km time trial.
M1 posted a time of 6:31 in the IM3 division in their first race and a time of 6:20 in the Novice division, winning that category and coming joint 9th in the whole event out of 170 boats.
M2 only raced once but rowed a much improved race to previous Head races to post a time of 7:02, placing them joint 40th with a lot of positives to take away from the race.
W1 raced twice, posting a time of 7:40 in the IM3 division (84th) and then 7:20 in the IM2 division, winning this category placing them joint 53rd out of 170 boats.
Next up is the Getting on Race for Lent Bumps this Friday for M2, M3 and W2 then bumps itself next week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
