The crew put in some good mileage on the course and enjoyed the opportunity of training out of Leander Club.
On Sunday they raced at the Met, starting with a time trial which saw 66 crews taking part. The crews were made up predominately of senior men’s club and university crews. The 1st VIII put in a strong result to come 10th in the time trial and secure themselves a place in the A/B semi-finals alongside some impressive competition.
The crew missed out on a place in the A final but put in a very strong performance in the B final to come 2nd, which was no mean feat given the quality of the crews in the event.
