Started sculling again a week ago, after a break of about 8 months when the club didn't have a boat big enough for my immense 77 kilos. I like the new one a lot. Not really got back on it technically, so aim here was simply to finish the race (which I haven't managed before).

Was hoping to rate at least 26, and managed about 28, yay! Steering (with Dan's help, thanks muchly) was pretty good, but went wide out of grassy having gone in too tight. Got tired and spacked in the last km, in part cos I knew I'd won my personal race already, and the gearing was a bit hard for my depleted upper body strength. Anyway despite losing heavily I'm happy, no burning forearms at all!

NB started at upstream little bridge post, 7mph average headwind. 4.38 to second Plough post, about 8.30 for 2km. (Tom C)
