M2 Mays 2019 - Day 1

Crew: 
M2 Mays 2019

"As grey clouds brooded over day 1 of Mays, M2 had a battle ahead. Having denied Magdalene M2 blades at Lents, they were pursuing us with a score to settle. Robinson M2 stood in front of us, also hoping to avoid a repeat of Lents where they were bumped by Catz M2. The cannon’s roar sounded the start of the race and the oars flew into motion; we charged down the river and soon came within our first whistle of Robinson. However, like some Lovecraftian beast, Magdalene crept up on us. Despite digging into hitherto unexplored reserves when the kill call was shouted, we found ourselves bumped. We weren’t disheartened however: the banter in the boat and knowledge that we rowed our best soon brightened our dampened spirits. We now look towards day 2 with a vigour and resolve to yet make a success of this Mays campaign."
