Emma Sprints 2010 took place on Sunday 21st November with some positive results for the Jesus novices during their first taste of real (i.e. on-river) racing, particularly for NM1 who came second out of the men's crews and of course NW1 who demonstrated that they are not only the fastest crew on the ergs at Queens' Ergs last week, but on the water too!
With 5 men’s teams and 3 women’s teams, JCBC’s Novice squad was the best represented of all colleges (including Queens) at Queens Ergs this year. Great team spirit and a lot of effort ensured that the Jesus results were equally as impressive as the turnout.
W1 won the women’s competition with an avg. split of 1:50.7 seconds, completing the 8x500m race 13.6 seconds faster than the runners up! M1 came an agonising second, with an avg. split of 1:30.7 seconds they were just 1second per man behind winners Churchill. Nick Parkes of Jesus NM1 also recorded the fastest individual men’s time of the event.
Jesus College Boat Club is opening its doors over the summer break to all Postgrads in college. This is a perfect opportunity to try a new sport, enjoy the sunshine and receive coaching from the college Head Coach, Mark Beer.
This programme is open to novice and experienced rowers alike.
On the morning of Tuesday 29th June, Jesus College Boat Club ran the Spare Pairs race at Henley Royal Regatta for the spare pairs of squads competing in the Regatta.
Congratulations to Goldie A (Wood/Brown) for winning this year's race.
The May Bumps 2010 took place Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th June. This year, JCBC was represented by five men's and three women's VIIIs. JCBC crew lists are available here.
Results for the Jesus crews are available here. You may also wish to read some race reports from the crews.
On Saturday 5th June, five members of M2 competed in a coxed four and a pair at the Peterborough Regatta, a 1000m four-lane race.
The IM3 coxed four won both their heat and semi-final, but unfortunately had a bad row in the final and came fourth overall. The pair qualified for the final, coming second in their heat then after a close race, came second in the final.

JCBC entered a number of crews into the start-of-term Small Boats Regatta with good performances all round. Jenny Thompson made it to the semi-final of Maiden Sculls and Ro Bradbury won both the Delafield Championship Sculls and the mixed category of Lowe Double Sculls (with Peter Ford of FaT).
Alex Thomson and Henry Hughes made the best of their training in the pair over Easter and won the Foster-Fairbairn Pairs event, meaning that Jesus has now won the event two years running.
Well done to all those who entered, especially those who won!
