Know idea what the ladies thought of their race but I think this is an excellent result and bodes well for the rest of this term! Congratulations girls.
Having not rowed in that particular crew order before, and having struggled even to get the boat house in the wind, few of us expected great things from today, but were pleasantly suprised. We had a pretty powerful start, and pushed up a little into Catz. Things went down hill a little form there, and the wind on the reach was nearly the end of us, but the power and determination was there for the duration.
Congratulations girls! For what was efectively a scratch crew and in appalling conditions the crew had a great row. The start was especially good, feeling powerful and together, and, although it tailed off as the race went on, I'm really pleased with the performance and the well-earned result.
