An interesting race in what was at least my seventh ever outing in a scull (and the first in this particular bathtub). My main problem, not helped by the lack of a fin on the boat, was that I couldn't stop the boat going round to bowside, so my trajectory throughout the race was approximately cycloidal. I hit the bank for the first time between the starting marshal and the start line, and regularly thereafter, most notably in First Post Reach, on Grassy and at Morley's Holt, at each of which I was stationary for probably twenty seconds. Never mind, at least I can blame it on the boat. (Flying)
And at least you didn't lose to Ms Palmer. Yet. (Dubya)
