Tom Andrews in his single scull, Shell

14th in Men's Single
Time: 12:03
Also didn't fall in, despite the outflow's best efforts. Bonus! (Tom)
Best bank steering call of the day:

"Outflow in two, outflow in one, outflow NOW!
- holds breath -
Great, you're still in the boat, let's get straight and go!"

Actually this was a really good row - very impressed indeed. (Albert)
Well done Tom on beating Albert by the narrowest of margins! A really surprising result, I didn't see this coming. (BJ)
Fastest FaT boat - says it all really (Martin Y)

A fairly sub-standard row, but nevertheless an amusing afternoon. I only crashed twice :-D

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... (Albert)

Russell/Aiken, Ladies doubles - shell

3rd in Women's Double
Time: 12:12
A couple of weeks ago Catherine and I vaguely thought about entering STCS and did nothing about it until the entry deadline on Friday; we entered ourselves but didn't manage to get any outings in. Hmmm. Yesterday it seemed like a good idea to have a quick practise at the whole sculling lark, it couldn't be that hard, right? Iain kindly agreed to banksteer and coach us, not really realising what he was letting himself in for. Once we'd got the blades and the gates the right way round and pushed off we made rapid improvement but it definitely wasn't quite up to Henley standard. Another outing this morning soon sorted that out and by this afternoon we were getting a bit more confident, even managing to do a square blades slide build which yesterday would have resulted in almost certain capsize.

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?! :) (Amelia)

Phil Horler in his single scull, Shell

Still feeling the effects of my 21st birthday the previous day, and not having been in a scull since October, my preparation for the race was less than ideal. That said, this result is still such turd I'm really quite ashamed.

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. (Phil)
