M3 Mays 2019 - Day 2

Crew: 
M3 Mays 2019

M3 set out on Thursday to right Wednesday’s wrongs.  Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including Hunter’s future children, Tom Nixon’s legacy and Rocky Balboa, we set out from our boathouse as the underdog.  After Hunter’s promise to name one of the aforementioned future kids after one of us should we bump, we were raring to go.  Things did not go entirely to plan.  The pursuing Downing M3 was (and, at the time of writing, still is) a very good crew.  At certain points, it felt as if we could pull away from them, but it was not to be, and we were bumped fairly quickly.  Again, there were many positives to take out of the race.  Our start sequence was solid, we showed that we could push ourselves deeper, and there will not be a Jeroen Sims running around southern Indiana.  We were simply beaten by a better crew.
