It's always the Captain who catches the crabs and this, our first race in the VIII of the year, produced the first crab of my rowing career! Well, two in fact - overhead monsters 2 or 3 strokes beyond the start line. How embarrassing. The race itself was pretty sweet. We sat at 34 solidly - moving well and raising it well for the end, utterly storming past the P&E. Felt good. (Martin)
The best bit of the day without doubt was bumping into Martin in the cloisters just after he'd got the results, and realising that we'd beaten all the other colleges... a real high.
The race had been solid - well, except for Martin's double crab at the outfall which gave Soph and I the giggles for a couple of seconds. (Simon)
