After splashing around at the taster sessions, we’re pleased to say we have two men’s novice eights, and one women’s eight, training for Christchurch. Not only that, but we have several novice coxes entering the world of JCBC. The women’s cox, Jo, is making good progress with the women’s senior boat-she had her first outing in the Filippi this morning. The men’s novices are looking to put up a strong fight at Christchurch and Nepthys-seeming to be one of the best novice crews we’ve spotted so far on the Isis. Ellie Berry, their coach, and James Chapman, their captain, have high hopes. Meanwhile the women have been improving under the steady guidance of their coach Hilary. The seniors should be worried for their W1 seats next term. Good luck to all in Nepthys and Christchurch Regattas, do Jesus proud!
