1450m head race from the Plough to the P&E.

Men's First VIII

6th out of 13 in 5:05

The aim for this race was for M1 to establish a strong transition from the start sequence to their racing speed. They executed this much better than in the previous race and practice pieces. This resulted in a good rhythm, but the crew failed to maintain that in the third quarter of the race (though it was established in the final push). Working on this will increase the crew's speed in the next few weeks.

Importantly, as we look ahead to the Mays, M1 beat the crew they will be chasing on the first day by 11 seconds. As long as they continue to train hard this is a good sign.
