2nd
Time: 10:55
In spite of my lack of recent sculling (12k of paddling around with Allen's pair being pretty much everything from the last month), this was one of the best races I've had in a single in the last 4 years. I've almost always struggled to keep the hands moving and race at the rate I want to over short distances, but with a chunky tailwind to drag me along, I stayed up at a reasonably sprightly 34 and battered my way down the course. The other encouraging sign was that I managed to feel like death 500m in but stay strong (I think) to the finish; a lot of pieces in the boat recently I've dramatically mispaced, in one direction or the other.
If I got fit and learnt to finish in time, it might almost be worth doing some racing with two blades again.
