The Athletics Sports came off on Thursday & Friday Oct 17 & 28. The weather was on the whole “propitious” but the “Ground” bad. The running excelled former years, as did also the jumping – in which Giles QS. cleared 5ft 6” & in the Pole jump Harrison QS. 8ft 8in, the “Long” Account will be found in the Q. S. Ledger.

The course was from Chiswick Eyot to a boat moored opposite the Star and Garter Putney. Eton won the choice of Station and took the Surrey side by which they got an awful advantage because of the sharp corner just below the Eyot. Westminster started badly, though they took a slight lead, but in a few strokes Eton drew up level and commenced an exciting contest for a short distance doing all in their power to prevent Westminster from taking their water. Westminster was steered badly in this part of the course and lost nearly two lengths by it. They put on a tremendous spurt from the Crab-tree and reduced the Etonians’ lead from 15 to three lengths; at the point the Etonians rowed remarkably well and gained half a length in which position they came in Westminster losing by three and a half lengths.
This is the best eight we have had from the time when we began to row Eton again. Great thanks are due to Hawshaw Late President of the Cam. Univ. B. C. an old Westminster to Forster Captain of the Univ. Coll. B. C. at Oxford for the increasing exertions at Oxford in coaching the eight: and Sun had a silver cup presented to him by the right for staying over at great personal inconvenience to row in the eight.
