For the second weekend in a row, John's took the top spot at home in Durham - this time in the first event of the senior DCR calendar. With similar format to the new Novice Cup (though this time without the 360 degree spin!), the short course time trial saw our top men's IVs seeded into the fastest four crews and our top women's IV in group C.
Two dramatic side-by-side races apiece later, and we still stand tall at the top of college rankings, with M1 finishing in first place, M2 in 4th and W1 in 9th overall.
Men's captain Toby Lehain would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the excellent rig for the first IV with the following statement: "We got a few funny looks for our unusual rigging, but all smirks soon disappeared as we went flying past in our bow-bucketed beauty."
