Being in a squad system and patchy availability meant that this was the second time this IV went out, although various combinations of 3 rowers had been out reasonably often. The row down started off as a bit nervy, but became more relaxed as we approached the lock. 

As it stands, the row was very committed and surprisingly pleasant for a scratch IV. Focus on being keeping relaxed meant that we probably could have been braver off the start - I feel that Clare IV had a strong start down first post reach which is where they made most of their gains. Fantastic lines from Will and good pushes down the straights meant that we held/moved away from them past first post corner (bit hard to judge distances though), but unfortunately it was not quite enough to hand us the win. However, the Clare IV- is a formidable boat (with a former CUBC spare pair at stroke), and I don't think this is a result we should be ashamed of, but something to build on approaching Senior Fairbairns.
