Mid-Lent Update

Alice Sunset

As the mornings begin to get colder and earlier, FCBC has been hard at work preparing to build on one of our most successful Michaelmas terms.

At the start of term, the Boat Club held it’s first camp at St Neot’s Rowing Club on the Great Ouse, in which we mixed up crews, learnt to deal with a new river and made a great start to the term, with plenty showing the kind of determination and application to required to cement their place as – or become – senior rowers.

This term we have four senior boats racing; 2 from both the men and women’s sides, the latter of which enjoyed the beautiful sunrise above (who says getting up early to row is a bad thing?). They’ve all been busy; a keen W2 full of ex-novices have been getting ready for the Getting-On Race in two weeks, another promising M2 has profited from last year and is already down to start the Lent Bumps. We’re hoping both these boats come together like we know they can and show the whole university what talent they have.

M1 have set off in the same vein as last term, looking to continue the good work which earned them a solid Fairbairn’s finish. This included an appearance at Newnham Short Course where they finished just 14 seconds off the division leaders, in far worse conditions. W1 are on their way to fusing together existing experience and fresh talent; if they can do it in time, we all know that they can be serious contenders.

Tomorrow the Men’s side will compete in Pembroke Regatta, against LMBC M1 and Jesus M2 respectively. The road to Bumps grows ever shorter, stay here and on our Facebook page for all the FCBC news.
