Daniel Philip Weatherill reports:


Although the previous week's training possibly had me worried that this "meatbarge" was going to move like a turbocharged but badly oiled machine, I was very pleased with the lively and smooth rhythm that we picked up with only a little splashing around. Plenty of short pushes were needed to keep our rate, but we did manage it and didn't lose a huge amount of pace throughout the course. The long cold wait for the start and the wind didn't help, but we came in a commendable position in a field that was very much larger than last year's. A great start to this year's racing, gents!
