Quarter finals
Lost to Jesus NW1 by 1 length
Having last met Jesus in the final of Emma Sprints were we moved through them and took the win, this was a race worthy of being the final but sadly came too soon.

Off the start we moved up to them to take a lead of 3 seats, and they held us there for the next 100 metres or so. Gradually Jesus began to push back and the otherwise good rhythm started to come apart under such concerted pressure. At about the halfway mark the crews were back level when Jesus took a lift we couldn't match, surging to a length lead and pushing on to 1 1/2 lengths coming through the railway bridge. 

We had a strong lift at that point to end the race, reducing the gap to a length but it wasn't enough to overhaul the deficit. Not our best row, but a good performance under pressure against a very strong crew and it was a great race to watch, with plenty of positives to take away for Fairbairns.
