Eights day one

June 2, 2011 in Captain's Blog, Summer VIIIs 2011

An equally infuriating and pleasing day for the girls!

W2 were chasing LMH and had overlap in the gut but then unfortunately came a crab, to detrimental effect. 5 more strokes and they would have had it! But they recovered well and gained on them for the rest of the race, – day two should bring them down!

W1 had a very good row – keeping their distance well ahead of Hall. Wadham caught Hall just before boathouse island, allowing Balliol to relax, dropping their rate to 32 and neatly paddling in to stay head.

All in anticipation for day two!
