Double sculls, Ulrike Bauer and Sarah Allen, in Freya (W.IM3 2x)
Pretty smooth and comfortable row given that this was only the 3rd time we were in a 2x together. We had some early buoy-clashes and were down a bit after the start but then started to slowly but continuously push through our opposition to a quite comfortable lead in the finish.
Slightly more tense and heavy than the heats, but only fair as the wind had picked up a bit and Sarah had literally just jumped out of the single before the race.
The conditions had decided to turn pretty evil and we had to fight a considerable cross-head wind and some seriously choppy water in an approaching thunderstorm. In combination with the number of races we had already done this made the row more than unpleasant and definitely took its toll on our sculling technique as well. We crashed less than in previous races and beat the 3rd place quite comfortably but were beaten pretty clearly in the end.
