Today’s row up to the start was solid considering the challenging weather conditions. Much like yesterday, Queens’ W2 had a confident start and initially gained on St Edmund’s I. However, when we settled into a rhythm our power dropped and this coupled with a crab meant we lost the chance of a bump. Although we were supposedly being chased by Jesus W3 they crashed during their start piece and were quickly bumped meaning that we were pursued by St Catherine’s who were looking for the overbump. They demonstrated some strong rowing and managed to overtake our boat.
Although we are disappointed to slip from 4th to 7th position our ability to execute a strong start means hopes are high for a bump on Friday where we will chasing Jesus W3.
