St Neots Sprint, Summer 2003

Eton Boy in his single scull (Senior 3 1x)

Single sculls
Alex Summers
1st round
Beat St. Neots (1/2l)
Local knowledge wasn't enough to save this energetic marshal. Despite not gaining any sort of advantage till the very end, I held my nerve to come through at the finish. (Alex)
Quarter finals
Beat Yare (1l)
I was a little disappointed not to be facing JPD in this race. Still having had no food, this was my fourth race in quick succession, and the Yare sculler perhaps sensed this as he tried to hurry proceedings along. In the event, though, it was he who ran out of steam: after going maybe three quarters of a length up, and still hanging on in the lead with only a hundred metres to go, he finally succumbed to a last minute do or die push for the line. This was my only half-decent sculling of the day. (Alex)
Semi finals
Beat Globe (1/2l)
My only race against another Empacher. The Globe sculler said afterwards he that he was rating 40. (Alex)
Final
Beat Bedford (1 1/2l)
This was a rematch of our S4 quarter-final. This time, though, I was sculling a little better and had some energy, and, despite some errant steering, won so efficiently that JPD didn't even notice as he dozed in his car. (Alex)
