There's a first time for everything... ;-)
So, a captaincy candidate getting in training?
Don't worry, it's all part of the masterplan...

Quarter of a length off Maggie coming into Ditton when crab at four effectively ended the race. They had a go at getting back at Maggie but the distance was too great. Emma closed to within a length but never looked like getting any closer. Roll on tomorrow.
Worse than yesterday before Ditton, better thereafter. We bumped just before the railings.
A bit lacklustre. And a bit of a foregone conclusion. Perhaps tomorrow will be more exciting.
Good work guys, good luck tomorrow, no doubt you'll be telling us the masterplan soon? [I know it's not really a report, but hey]
We were pissed off with yesterday, geared up, psyched up and went for it. Didn't quite make it (1/4 length at Ditton, and it was bumpy), but had a damn good go.
A completely commited row demonstrating once again the Lent VIII is the fastest college boat this term. Not quite fast enough to get the bump but still the fastest.
This is not strictly spaeaking a race report - more of a message for M1.
I know you will all be very disappointed. I know that this will be of no immediate consolation, but the whole club was very impressed by your effort today. You are indeed the fastest Lent VIII, and your performance today was worthy of the top boat of the best club on the Cam.
