An awesome result with a win in S4, beating Caius and Emma on the way! We had a really solid row, at low-ish rate, with Caius directly behind. Although we lost ground through a bad start, we kept our cool and pushed off them constantly - a very useful skill for Bumps rowing! (Rich)
Buoyed immensely by the return of the pwerful Al Fisher from trialling we set about this race with real purpose.

Caius started behind us and clearly closed over the first few minutes. However, our race strategy of dividing the evet into 90 second intervals worked wonders and we banged down a great rhythm into the breeze to clearly move away.

We had been following an outrageously tough training programme but this proved that our fitness had come on immensely since the the Fairbairns as we we clearly beat crews that had been 40 and 20 seconds ahead of us then. (Ingram)
