Torpids success for Exeter’s rowers
The renaissance of Exeter College Boat Club gathered pace at this year’s Torpids races.
The men’s first boat bumped their way up the league from second in division three to 11th in division two. They narrowly missed out on blades, rowing over on the final day.
The women’s first boat also enjoyed considerable success. After being bumped by Queen’s on day one they raced up the league, bumping on each day thereafter, including taking revenge on Queen’s along the way. They moved from sixth in the third division to fourth.
The steady improvement in form of both boats is encouraging and the Boat Club is optimistic about Summer VIIIs next term.
