Fastest NM2, 3rd Overall
I was on the train home from London when I called Tom to ask how NM2's race had gone. At this point I had seen the provisional results for the first two divisions, to my dismay Fitz had beaten NM1 by a narrow margin, but Tom had not. Thus when he told me they had timed around 10:10, I was far more shocked than he was... We refused to believe it until the results were released.
A new record, boys. That really is something else, and has made all of this term's work very much worth it.
3rd fastest NW1
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!
