36th overall, 4th fastest 3rd VIII
Time: 10:24
As the only third boat in the first division, we started off really well and we were holding off Newnham who were quite a long way behind us.
Then disaster struck for reasons that I'm still not clear about! We managed to crash in between some very small poles, and nearly lost Kirsty into the river! Unfortunately after that we all seemed to lose our nerve and our drive, especially on the row back when we seemed destined to crash into everything the Cam had to offer.
Try not to be disheartened by it - we were rowing well up until the crash. We need to recover better from setbacks and not let things that go wrong affect our performance as much as we did.
10/10 for the post race pub though, I definitely approve of that, especially there's rugby on! (Fi)
