Gloomy and cold as usual, plus extremely windy. We had a strong rolling start and pushed hard to keep the boat sat in the choppy water. But at the corner near the Plough, finally the wind took the control blowing W3 right to the bank. We didn’t panic and started off again from front stop with 3 draws, 5 winds, 10 lengths and a few more strokes… and we overtook Sidney Sussex III ! Definitely one of a kind racing pieces with an happy ending– we got on May Bumps Division IV. Let’s bump!
