May Bumps 2014 M1 Day 1

It was never going to be an easy week starting 5th in the top divsion. Being chased by a poorly performing FaT crew, with a potentially fast Jesus ahead, we planned to go hard off the start, and accept whatever came from behind if we didn't manage to catch Jesus. As it happened, we did gain on Jesus off the start, but not by more than quarter of a length, before dropping off to 2 or 3 lengths down Plough Reach. FaT behind were pushed onto us by Pembroke, but never got much within a length, even from a kill call, while we had reserves left. 

Overall, rowing over was a solid result, and if we can achieve the same tomorrow against a more testing Pembroke crew, we can be very happy.
