It was a pity, I was quite looking forward to this!
"Outflow in two, outflow in one, outflow NOW!

Great, you're still in the boat, let's get straight and go!"
Actually this was a really good row - very impressed indeed.
Felt spacky and slow most of the way, and never hit any sort of rhythm until the railway bridge. Slightly embarrassed that my last 500m were probably the fastest part of the piece...

At the lock we were set off a good few minutes ahead of Ed Richardson, previous winner on STCS, CUBC and GB triallist; he overtook us by the end. Apart from that slight disappointment, the race was ok. We didn't crash, Catherine took some nice accurate lines (and some very nice scenic ones too), we got to the end, didn't fall in and most importantly did it all in very matching kit. I'm pleased we got out and did this race; it was an interesting sculling debut and certainly a platform to build on in the future - Henley next year?! :)

Having never done any sort of firm pressure in a single, I wasn't sure how I'd react to a head piece. I think the sculling itself was reasonably tidy, but by Ditton my forearms were beginning to burn. At the Railway bridge they were in agony, and I was swerving all over the course, unable to steer any sort of line.
I think if I can learn to take corners well, I'll probably take 10-15 seconds of my time, and if I can learn to actually use my legs and give my arms a rest, I might be able to put in a vaguely respectable time.
