Victoria Lindley reports:


W2 had no idea how our race was going to go today. The first of term- the first senior race ever for some of our members, after only two outings, with very windy conditions. However, upon arrival at the boat house, spirits were high and soon we had pushed off for our row down. After some minor entanglement with our very own coach’s boat, we had a strong row down, with our little pieces showing real improvement. After many, many race sweets (I think we may have started to weigh the boat down to be honest), and some inspirational talks about how fresh legs ‘would just come to us’ at the top of the reach, we set off. Immediately we seemed quite settled, pushing away from the motorway bridge - at rate unknown as Jamie’s cox box didn’t tell her – and we rowed a strong first half of the course. Whilst ‘fresh’ legs may have been a slight (serious) over exaggeration, we did find it in us to put down some impressive power 10s, and there were moments when the boat almost felt...sat? With a strong Champs crew chasing us all the way, we tired a little towards the finish, but kept it clean enough to come home with a very respectable time, especially given the wind. All in all, a very promising first race for W2!
