Mid-race disagreements with the banksteerer aren't always such a good thing. But I didn't crash, and was soon enough able to tell how I was doing without updates from the towpath. (Alex)
Final
Beat Mark Corbett (Downing) by 15s; Dan Eves(Christ's) by 44s
Time: 8:25
This was switched to a three-way final at my request after various withdrawals meant that I would have had three races if I won the event, rather than each of my opponents' two. This was nice after some careless bursts when racing Dmitri and too long standing on the towpath the day before had left my legs a bit tired.

I unfortunately drew bottom station again, so had to work hard all the way. I got a bit stuck behind Dan who had started second coming round Ditton, but put in a solid last five hundred to close the gap on Mark enough for a pleasing victory.

Thanks to all involved for some enjoyable races. It's a pity messrs. Richardson and Barry-not to mention Perrin, Maier, Boote and many other big heavy people-didn't make it to the start line. Maybe they object to giving money to LMBC (I got Rupert to do the dirty work for me) or perhaps they're saving themselves for Sunday in the hope of being invited to compete in the RTT regatta...
