Jordan Ward-Williams reports:


Is it really Michaelmas if you don't have a least one race with a scratch crew in a boat you've not been rowing in? Having spent the past two weeks training in matched VIIIs we thought we'd see what M1 were capable of, by racing Autumn head as our first outing together. The race start felt really punchy, taking the rate into the mid 30s. We settled into a good rhythm and had patches of really clean, powerful rowing (and patches of less impressive rowing...). We held the rate high and made massive gains on Queens' ahead of us, eventually overtaking them as we were coming into the P&E. All in all, a really promising start to term!
