Timed race from the motorway bridge to the railway bridge

Women's First VIII

A big step forward for W1

With several recent novices in the boat, we had struggled in past outings to bring up the rate without rushing the slide or becoming scrappy. However, on race day everything clicked into place. Our goal was to wind to rate 30-32 during the rolling start and settle to no less than 28; instead, we wound to 34 and stayed at that rate the entire course. We finished the course with a time of 9:09.
