The row to the start was, unsurprisingly, not very tidy or together, but I think it was better than might have been expected and it was improving over time.
The race piece seemed fairly solid for a scratch crew, and we could tell we were gaining on the boat in front, but I think our pace suffered a bit from under-rating - I don't think we spent much time above rate 31.
Our time was 2nd out of 5 in the Open Eights category.
Lost to Cantabs Fiddian by 2.5 lengths
They took quite a lot of distance out of us on the first 3 strokes, but we got most of it back as we wound up. Unlike in the time trial, we took the rate fairly high (I think it was something like 37) and kept it there as long as we could. I think our pace roughly matched Cantabs, sitting the same distance behind them, until shortly before the railway bridge when we began to tire and they began to move away.
Beat Caius Memories of Mateo by 3 lengths
Lost to Cantabs Senior Women / Men by scratching because we thought we were disqualified
It being my fourth race of the day, and having snoozed during marshalling, I think it was a wonderful high to end on the race against Caius.
