Lost by only a second, but happy with our mental approach. This was our second race of the day, and we didn't make the same mistake twice. This time we attacked the third quarter (i.e. the Reach) relentlessly, meaning we'd pretty much gassed ourselves by the rail bridge. The boat felt very, very, very heavy. We had a variety of theories, with the two most likely being 1) tiredness from the earlier race in the VIII and 2) and the presence of a rudder obstruction which fouled the steering and could have added some nontrivial drag. Not sure how much of a difference that made, but we still had a committed row and that's what counts at this early stage. (James)
