Spring Head-to-Head

21/45 - 4th in 3rd Mays - 14:12

The Head-to-Head is always a tough race, but on this occasion the headwind that had picked up after a few days of brilliant weather made it an even harder prospect. After a delay due to a very late crew member, we pushed our new shinily painted blades off the bank and headed down to the start. Marshalling was chaotic and done in a light drizzle, all of which made it very hard to switch on just before the start of the race.

Head of the Cam

16/35 - 2nd in Other Mays - 9:42

It was a beautifully sunny day for the first race of the season, the Head of the Cam race run by Chesterton Rowing Club. Using Emma as our substitute cox, we sat in a massive queue of boats waiting to get up to the start, which didn't help our attempts at getting into a good rhythm. After a bit of sunbathing whilst marshalling at Baitsbite, we were finally ready to start.
