By getting under the lampost at Hammersmith, do you mean getting there as part of the racing line or getting that far and stopping?
by Dan - Sun 29th Feb 2004, 9:27pm
I can only hope that it was meant in the racing line sense. however if you think that it is likely that youll stop at hammersmith bridge then perhaps we need to add another option to make this more explicit!

So we think that P(Top 150) > P(Top 200)?

I need to know who is in this crew before I vote. Also, how many entries are there?
by dw229 - Sun 29th Feb 2004, 11:48pm
It's quite obvious Jon: there's a negative probability of them coming in the places 151-200.

There's a record entry of 278 crews (which just goes to show how stuffed BPBC men are when you think we're starting 362nd in the men's event).

I did mean get under the lampost in the racing line sense...

If someone could oblige and put the crew list up in the results section then that would be very useful. And obviously good luck to the crew - lets hope it warms up!

isn't it a lamp post or lamppost, anything but a lampost?
by Jo S - Sat 6th Mar 2004, 7:58pm
Well... we dont know how we actually did, but i can tell you that those of you who voted for blade clash, 2nd lamp-post or overtaking more than overtaken by are all winners. We achieved all 3. We overtook 4 crews, were overtaken by none, blade clashed with Emma B and Honeys steering was impeccable. She is clearly a reformed character.

Oh, and we didnt sink, despite the best efforts of a passing launch.

113th, in a time of 21:15.7 - beat Maggie by a glorious 2 seconds. Well done.
