13th, 1st invitational VIII

One of the mystifying things about Fairbairns is why I seem to come back and race it almost every year despite never really enjoying it. But, all things considered, this was better than expected. It was quite short, but the Darley/Robson combination set a good consistent rhythm. It was definitely better than last years effort too. However, next year I'll try and at least be healthy even if I can't be fit. (Dan)
Helped out this year by a little bit of practice, we managed a much more comfortable row than last time around. A relaxed 32ish most of the way felt maybe a little too relaxed, but who knows what pushing harder might have done for the quality of the rowing in the latter stages. Our major opposition came from a reasonably stacked Emma boat, whom we beat by 15s to regain the Invitational title.
A lot seems to have changed since I left, and I'm not just talking about table football in the bar... we beat Caius and were beaten by Homerton. What's going on there? (Jon)
