After beating our only opponents by several lengths in the previous day's final, we were expecting this to be fairly easy. As such, although we moved nicely in the first few strokes, we were both a little worried at leading by only a length at 250m.

In 500m races you don't have to hold on for long though, and our race plan of "stay on rate throughout, push a bit harder in the last 10 strokes" worked fine; even after visiting the opponents' lane a few more times than necessary, the finishline still came a stroke earlier than I expected.

It was nice to note that in the following Sen 2- race (which we would have been in if we'd picked up a point the previous day) we would have been very close to 2nd and a length down on the Cantabs pair who won to become Elite. This makes it feel slightly less bad that we're now ineligible for the event we failed to win on Saturday... maybe I should have regressed a point when I had the chance. (Peter)
