Final
Beat Simoco
Simoco very graciously allowed us to delay the start of the race at the last minute after we realised there was a clash with the VIIIs final. Thus, we (and a sculler who had fallen in) were the finale of the evening. Jenny made sure it was interesting for the crowded spectators by taking bow-side rather close to the bank and attempting to sever a few ankles... by that stage, however, we had a comfortable lead and the final few strokes to the line were amused rather than panicked! (Erica)
Despite just having got off the water from our previous final and having raced a total of over 12000m today, our start was strong and together and we started to eat into their lead (from the stagger) from the first stroke. We settled into a long loose rhythm and soon opened up a comfortable lead. About 5 strokes from the finish, with in excess of a hundred people watching, we made things a little bit more interesting by having a quick visit into the bank. Fortunately though we were miles ahead and even with our detour we still won comfortably. They told us that they were pleased to have been beaten by less than five lengths.

Note to self and anyone else reading: H2H2H2H2sprint2sprint2sprint makes for VERY tired legs. Lots of fun though. :) (Amelia)
