Summer 8s Day 1 round-up:

W1: ⬇️ W1 had a strong start and seemed like they could hold St Hugh’s off for the whole course. However, coming to Donnington Bridge Hugh’s women started to gain on us, thanks to a strong push. They were caught just as they were approaching the middle of the gut, making W1 top of Div 3 tomorrow.

M1: ⬇️ While the men’s boat didn’t go into the race with very big expectations, they had a fairly strong start and had a good attempt at holding off the quick Queen’s crew. That is until Donnington bridge, where Queen’s finally caught our crew and bumped them out of the race. However, it was an enjoyable race today and we are looking forward to the other three, perhaps with slightly better luck!
