Robinson were feeling robbed of a bump from Wednesday and so were keen to set the records straight. However we weren’t going to go down easily. They gained on us at the start and closed to half a length by grassy corner. The crew stayed perfectly relaxed as we knew from the day before that we could hold a position like this. The gap closed even further through Ditton and they had overlap on the reach. We still stayed in our rhythm and were confident that we had the speed. Eventually we pulled out to half a length and they soon fell away to a length for us to row over. I’m sure those on the bank were quite tense at points!
