Good start, winding up quite high before settling into a vaguely sustainable pace. Our lack of fitness started to show during the second mile and a couple of blade clashes, (mini-) crab from Clive and loose backstay at 2 didn't aid our efforts to row fast.
A decent solid row, but we probably should have gone a little faster.
I'm sure Graham will give a fuller account when he gets back.

We had a good solid row which, as bow number 46, included being overtaken by 48 (47 had scratched) who then cut in front of us. Bron had nowhere to go (cue lots of shouting) as we were simultaneously in the process of overtaking 45. Who were themselves overtaking 44. We managed to overtake them both through the middle and get to Weeks Bridge first so Bron could have the line she wanted around the sharp bowside corner immediately after the bridge. 49 then closed in the final stage of the race, but emptying the tank ensured we didn't get overtaken.
All in all a very enjoyable race, except the overpowering fried dough smell half way down the course. Many thanks to everyone who has subbed during the training (especially Rich for trying to row like a girl ;-), everyone who lent us kit, Lizzie for her cox box, MIT for the equipment, Amy for agreeing to row at the last minute, everyone who let us stay on their floors and the boys for cheering very loudly.
