With one week to go…

In addition to my previous post…

A huge thank you is due to Simon Wan and Clarissa Belloni, cox and stroke of W1, who have been acting co-captains this term due to my failing health. They have done a brilliant job.

Further, Nick Bevan, our star coach of the past five years fled to Australia in first week for a well earned break and as such we have had the dynamic due of Jo Williamson (ex-blue and Headship crew member) and Abs Harrison (Headship crew and many years of rowing experience) coaching us. They have been there for every 6am start (Jo having an inability to not sub at every opportunity) and have had a significant influence on the crew, rousing morale and recreating that ‘Balliol-go-get’em’ mentality. I for one sincerely hope they continue to have such fundamental involvement in BCWBC on Nick’s return.

With exactly one week to go until Torpids, spirits are high, alcohol is being avoided, and a sense of anticipation is in the air…
