Due to some sort of mix up we started ridiculously low and had to spend a lot of the race overtaking. A solid first half, but the second half left a little to be desired - in particular, we didn't attack the last k the way we'd planned. We got the result we were looking for though, making up in part for the embarrassment of the head to head. Plenty of room for improvement before bumps, but fortunately we still have the time to make the necessary changes.
The warm and calm conditions made this race particularly enjoyable (I never thought I'd be doing Head of the Nene in an all-in-one), and the result was very pleasing. An excellent way to see off BP1/TR1/FTT801 as the top boat.
