It felt really good to get down the seconds compared to last week.
We sat down the night before to write out a race plan and I think for the first time ever for me we followed the plan through the race. We possibly could even have done it without prompting from the coxswain... maybe we'll ditch her next time.
3 1/2 weeks to go and I'm getting a more and more positive feel about these Lents. Ra freaking ra boys.
This was the first 'full crew' race so a great opportunity to see where we were compared to our competitors early in the term. We went off well at 38 and found a rhythm at 34/5 which we held for most of the course. By the second half of the race we had put considerable distance into Catz behind us, and multiple pushes out of Ditton and along the reach meant a strong finish to the race. Not a bad result but more speed to come!
M4's second race a crew showed a lot of commitment and a huge improvement in time-wise.
