W1 had a GREAT race on Friday -- there were certainly some scrappy bits, but we had some really good bits as well. Most importantly, we proved to ourselves 2 things: first, we were able to turn scrappy rowing straight back into calm, powerful paddling on a call from our cox, and second, we have a LOT more power than we're using most of the time -- pushes worked great and showed us there's a lot of extra boat speed to tap into over the next few weeks!

Perhaps best of all, it was a beautiful sunny afternoon, and our rows down and back were some of the best paddling we've done yet.

We're on our way, and have a great platform to improve from over the next 2 weeks until bumps!
