Saturday saw the conditions make a turn for the worse with a strong headwind for most of the course. Jesus ahead of us quickly caught a spooning Peterhouse leaving clear water in front of us. Robinson closed in on us by first post corner but were struggling to cope with the wind. As they closed, we knew from the previous days races that we could confidently hold them off and the further down the course we got, the more Robinson appeared to lose heart. King’s closed in on Robinson around grassy and they clearly couldn’t handle having a crew that close so they soon crumbled, being bumped around Ditton. We then rowed over with both crews either side again bumping out. Overall we moved up one position which is the joint best position for Queens’ M1 since 2008!
