Early on in Michaelmas W1 decided that they wanted to show their worth before Torpids in the Isis Winter League. Overall they entered 4 out of the 5 races and performed well in each one.
The first race saw the women come third. In the second and third races there were far more entries, however, LMH W1 still managed to show that they were in the faster half of the women’s crews training on the Isis by coming fourth in both.
In the fourth and W1’s final race before Torpids our women debuted a slightly different crew, including some of the novices who raced in Christ Church Regatta. The risk paid off and W1 stormed down the course, finishing in second place.
