Heats
won
A light tailwind and almost perfectly flat lake allowed us to put in a relatively clean row to win our heat by a fraction of a length. 2 other crews held pace for most of the race, trading not more than a few seats until Nereus fell back, leaving Cardiff Uni and us fighting it out to the line. A late, but effective wind to the finish saw us get our bows just in front. (Will L)
Semi finals
3rd (first 2 through to final)
The conditions had changed to a nasty crosswind for our semi, the lake was getting pretty choppy and a number of waves came over the bows onto me.

Although we didn't qualify for the final in what turned out to be a relatively strong semi we came from behind with a really powerful second half to close to a matter of feet by the line. Gutted to miss out on the final, however we've learnt some valuable lessons for Henley. (Will L)
