The senior divisions of the 1999 Fairbairn Cup Races were postponed due to gale force winds on the morning of 3 December 1999. Some crew changes due to injury. Important arrangements are being confirmed via e-mail.

Jesus College Boat Club are in the process of giving their site a face-lift. This event's revised starting order is available on the new site. As of 20 January 2000, the new site's pages on event history, information and course map were not working, but the old version of the Fairbairn Cup information page was still there. Hopefully, this will be sorted out shortly.

Informal Club AGM : 1 December 2000

Dinner at an exclusive Cambridge location — probably 7a Jesus Lane as per usual (witness The Usual Suspects) — for the crew, all other Club Members and their other halves. This will also be an informal Club AGM and a chance to discuss our plans for the forthcoming year!

We'd like as many members — not just the Fairbairns crew — to join us in Cambridge for food and drink. The 2001 Henley Royal Regatta might not be the only topic of conversation.

Location / Time

The evening will begin in the Queens' boathouse coaching room at approx. 6 p.m.
