Summer Eights took place on the Isis last week, May 23 - 26th 2012, and culminated in a tremendous day down at the river on Saturday, with record numbers of supporters outside the boathouses, encouraged by the wonderful weather.
Christ Church Boat Club fielded four mens and two womens teams this year. Overall it was a very succesful week for Christ Church, although the finely balanced skills in the fastest boats meant that there was no movement at the top of Division One, with the top five men's boats all remaining in identical positions all week and Christ Church's M1 retaining third position.
Christ Church's M2 crew had an outstanding week, and were aiming for blades on Saturday but were thwarted by the race being stopped due to a first aid issue. They were very disappointed but finished 8th in Division 2, up three places, and are easily the highest ranking second eight. The M3 boat moved up two places and ended at the top of Division five, the highest ranking mens third boat of any college. M4 in division seven had a mixed week, falling two places before rallying with a bump on Saturday, to end in seventh place.
The Women's 1st eight, with two returning Blues, began at ninth place in the first division and moved up two places, while the womenn's second boat dropped one place to finish eighth in Division 3. We congratulate all our rowers and thank our sponsors for another outstanding year.
