Hi all,

Firstly, thank you very much for taking part in the Fairbairn Cup 
regatta over the past two days! I hope you all enjoyed it and had the 
success you were hoping for!

The provisional results for the regatta are on the website, and the 
final results will follow shortly. Winning crews are all invited to 
attend the prize-giving ceremony in Jesus College, in the Coleridge Room 
(ask the porters if you're unsure!) at 6pm tonight. The dress code for 
this is very much informal, although as I'm aware many of you will be 
attending Boat Club Dinners later tonight, please feel free to come in 
formalwear - you will not be alone I promise!

Thanks again, and congratulations to ALL crews who took part over the 
past few days!

Best wishes,
