After a bit of a curvy start, Jon and I settled to a decent race rhythm moving down 1st post reach. My line around the first corner was decent, quickly followed by the widest line around grassy I have ever taken. Happily, we recovered and made good time past the Plough. Seeing our main competition much further away down the Reach than they were at the start was encouraging enough to almost lead us into the bank where Swords had predicted. Luckily, we had an awesome banksteerer in Emily Hopkinson (Selwyn), cheering us along the entire way and making sure there was no crashing.
Happy with the result, more to come for SBR!
If I got fit and learnt to finish in time, it might almost be worth doing some racing with two blades again.
