A great day for racing but not our most successful day out! The best we managed was third, for the Mens S3 4+ boat. This wasn’t bad for a new crew line-up, with Pierre-Yves coming in for the injured Will and Nick reclaiming his seat. Our quad had it’s second outing, posting a fair time, especially considering we had to stop when impeded by a very novice octuple!
The other crews out were from the womens’ squad, which is going from strength to strength. Amazingly, the S3 4+ and S4 4+ crews posted identical times (mind you, half the crew was the same in both boats!) – this despite the first time coxing on a river for Rob.
Unfortunately, the Novice Women arrived late at the start and were turned back. As they couldn’t row in a later division they had to scratch.
