Coxed by: Emma Smith

263rd
Time: 20:27.22
A very very long very very painful race. Rate 30 pretty spacky.

Thanks to two crews in front of us blade locking before Hammersmith we caught up to both and raced right alongside one of them for about 1k. Then we had a massive boat stopping blade clash which put us 1/2 a length up on the restart. They caught this up again and we settled back into the rhythm of they push, then we push, then they push, ....

After about another 1.5 k we finally got past them and came into the finish with about 1/2 a length of clear water.

I reiterate, a very very long very very painful race (S.C. Mertes)

1. Side-by-side through...
2. Approaching Hammersmith
3. Coming into the catch
