W1 started off the day determined to draw on the positives from our previous race rather than dwell on the unfortunate result.
We started off our race with a fast start with the aim of pushing up on Emma W2 who had bumped us on Tuesday. Sadly it was not to be, as we were bumped by Jesus W2 before we could get to Emma, but as the photo shows we kept our technique and power all the way to the bump, and we don’t feel too ashamed to go down to one of the fastest women’s crews on the river.
In today’s race we will be at the top of a three-boat sandwich with Darwin W1 chasing us and Pembroke W2 chasing them. We’re hoping to bring the focus again and push off Darwin, then hopefully have another try at bumping Emma on Saturday. Come down to the river to shout for us if you can!
