Claire Watkins reports:


After some disrupted outings recently due to exams, this session was a good chance for us to open up the lungs and get the legs working over (nearly) the full course. Our start was pretty neat, and we settled to a tidy and long rhythm in the tailwind, with plenty of room for pushes above it. We know we can attack the piece with a good amount more intensity come bumps week, so this was a good row for us to demonstrate our ability to keep within our pattern over the distance. We came in 1 second behind Emma, with Churchill taking home the pots - with some sharpening up over the next week, our full crew and plenty of yellow fire, bring on bumps!

Also - great work Julia on runner-up for the best line round Grassy :D
