Today was regatta day, it was lovely, my boat finished first in our heat and made it to finals, we just barely beat CJRC (very good team) by less then a boat lenght. But we would take it. [Wink]
But after so many more races when it came to our final my boat came in sixth out sixth in our final. So, we didn't medal. But ya know what? I couldn't be more proud of my boat, yes winning is amamzing, and I won't lie, I would have loved to have come home with a big shiny medal hanging around my neck, but I know that my boat pushed it, I know that I pushed it.

So that was my day! hope you all had a wonderful one. I'm sunburned and rather sore, I also have a red nose (Damn. December is so far away). [Big Grin]

Are you rowing in eights? Racing is what rowing is all about - almost makes all the tedious and ridiculously early training session worthwhile (I say almost... [Razz] )

Actually this year I'm in a four. [Big Grin]
I rather enjoy it. But I do miss rowing in an eight, maybe next season they'll put me in one.

The last regatta I was in was the Annual Adams House Raft Race in 1981. My roommate and I were on "The Dead Man's Float", which was a coffin on top of a bunch of pontoons. It ended the race at the bottom of the Charles, but much fun was had by all.
