5th (+00:19) to Jesus M3
A decent row on a nice course. We lacked aggression - probably put off by the unfamiliar feeling of feathered blades - but still held a decent rate for the course. This was probably our last outing in David Jones so we look forward to returning to our usual aggressive chopping in 803 (square blades of course). Many thanks to our subs who had already raced twice beforehand.
Having had a "remember how to row strokeside" crash course in the M1 race beforehand, I went into my 3rd race of the day without much power left in my legs but with mildly better bladework.
As it stands, the row was quite solid and enjoyable - probably a tad too sustainable off the start, but the crew actually sustained it throughout the whole course and had a nice sprint for the finish.
