2nd invitational VIII, 11th overall
Some members of the crew felt that there had been "good patches", but these did not extend as far as the bow seat. More practice required.
This was, by a distance, the messiest Fairbairn eight I've rowed in since my novice eight. There was plenty of power going down, but a complete lack of cohesion meant that this didn't translate into boat speed. 2/10.
