A 2000m knock-out regatta for coxless pairs as part of the Small Boats Regatta - raced in the 'chasing' format (boats starting 100 yards apart) from the posts before the motorway bridge to those by the pink house in the Reach.
Mon 19th - Wed 21st April
A pretty awful race to be honest. We never found a rhythm and the boat never ran very well. however we put in quite a bit of power and that saw us through. We had a couple of dodgy moments including one where steered us into the bank just before the plough as i was watching them crash at grassy. After that there was a whole series of shipwrecks down the course. If we hit a rhythm and get it set up like it has been in our prerace pieces we should go quite fast. (Dan)
A pretty good start to this race. Though we could have done with double clamming as the wind was quite strong. We were chasing though and were about a length off at Ditton and so despite a very bad corner and a bit of a slog up the reach we still had them by quite a good margin. (Dan)
Dont know the official result yet but Im a bit gutted. We had a nice start and I think closed on them a bit. We failed to take first post properly, had a nice grassy and then an ok push down Plough reach. Unfortunately it went a bit wrong from there. Ditton was very bad, I came over too soon and then really struggled to get round what becomes quite a tight corner. All the way up the reach I struggled to hold our line and in the end I dont quite think we capitalised on our power. (Dan)
