Autumn Fours – 23/10/16
The Jesus women started off their racing season well on Sunday, entering two boats for Autumn Fours. Racing got underway as novices put in hard work on the ergs.
The women’s A boat got through it’s first round race, beating Brasenose’s A boat by a few lengths. This was swiftly followed by a race against Trinity A, which saw a dramatic clash of blades, causing Jesus A to lose their lead. An appeal was unsuccessful, so Jesus A was unable to race in the next round. Jesus B put in a valiant effort with faulty steering in narrow lanes, but lost a close race with Somerville A.
The crews were happy to start the season off with some solid racing, and are excited to enter Nephthys. Both crews would also like to thank the marshals who volunteered!
