Senior Men Michaelmas 2014 Report
The year got off to a good start with a senior squad around 15 strong putting in the hours. Training at Godstow 5 times a week, we have had time and space to focus, away from the hustle and bustle of the Isis in the build up to Christ Church Regatta. Some recent bouts of rain have rendered Godstow unrowable but we have been training hard in the boathouse, hopping on the ergs and making great use of our new weights suite - a brilliant addition to our facilities which will certainly make a difference come Torpids and Eights.
The term culminated in a solid performance at the Isis Winter League – a head race from Donnington Bridge to the head of the river – where despite the rain damaging our water training, we still placed 10th.
I’d like to thank our weights coach Ahmad Atamli and rowing coach Oliver Collins for their knowledge and guidance this term. Looking into 2015, with eager novices and returning rowers joining the ranks, it looks to be an exciting and successful year.
