Special thanks to Amelia for bank-partying, to Jane for being on the Reach when we were tired, and to Will for carrying Harriet's broken blade home after rowing himself. And to Charlie for coaching. And all my fellow crew, oh i love you all!
Dom, positively no screw ups today. Be really careful with the boat and don't take ANY chances.
Cox's reply to coach prior to outing:
Sure thing Charlie. Don't worry I'm on it.
Boat situation fifteen minutes into outing:
One collar on blade broken.
Coach has to run entire length of course with spare blade. By his own admission not the happiest time of his life.
But they got on in the end, so no worries.
1. Marshalling at the lock
2. Getting On
3. Approaching the finish
So it looks like blades for M5 this year! No, really...
Martin tells me you are the first FaT 5th VIII in the Lents for five years. Nice one.
1. Nearing the finish
2. On the Reach
3. Still tidy on the Reach
... just seen the results. Only 9s slower than the fastest N-Q crew. Beat 12 higher crews, including LMBC 5 by 22s. Shame not to get on, but a performance to be proud of.
On a different note, can I point out all pictures of me in lycra were taken at a bad angle and that the camera adds 10 pounds, there were two cameras so that makes me look a stone and a half heavier.
A good time, excellent for a 6th VIII. Hopefully you'll all come back to row the Mays.
1. full extension
2. Onto the Reach
3. bow 6
My unofficial timing had them around 6:45 at this point. About 2 minutes from the finish I say. So by my reckoning, this would have put them somewhere near the fastest non-qualifiers or possibly even the slowest qualifiers.
Keep keen, keep training and see you all back next term!
