1st women's VIII, College VIIIs

5th of 9 1st women's VIIIs
Time: 11:12
A solid row for a scratch crew. The balance was much better than I was expecting in the first half of the race. Some unsettled strokes caused us problems, and we found it difficult to recover, but Charlotte's driving force from the stroke seat carried us through. We held rate 32 for most of the course.

One of the marshals was kind enough to give us some encouragement near Ditton and we lifted onto the straight with much enthusiasm, even if not as much finesse as I would like. Yining turned this into a heartening call and we held the tempo reasonably over the reach.

At the railway bridge we had a big power focus and I felt the boat started to move well here, especially for such a late stage of the race. There was some confusion about the finish, and we peaked a bit too early, limping across the line.

There's still a lot to be gained from more fitness, more control and more cover, but a decent result early in term, giving us a benchmark for further improvement. (Julia A.)
