Our best row of term. We had an awesome first half of the race - the blade work and boat set was excellent and the crew committed to each push. Coming through Chesterton (great line by Emily) we managed to hold the rhythm we had up to the railway bridge despite fatigue taking its toll and then pushed on again as we made it through the line. The commitment to our race plan was always there and the entire crew raised their performance for the race. The rowing was unrecognisable from that at Emma Sprints 11 days ago, but the biggest impression left on me was the mental toughness to come back from losing to Fitz (twice) and Downing and beat them both by 15s over the course!
