May Bumps 2015: M2 Day Three

With confidence that a slower-than-expected Emma M2 on our tails meant we'd finally have a chance of a row-over, our row down experienced a seed change, with powerful and committed battle paddling and much more optimistic camaraderie.

We had a clean, hi-rating start, and held the crews around well, till Emma M2 began to make their move into the stride, and were at a length coming round Ditton. We held them off quite valiantly, with strong and committed pushes to drive them away, but eventually, their push overpowered us as we passed the plough. Credit to Emma M2 for a good race.

I look forward to finishing this week's row with our heads held high, and with the same guts, attitude and humour we displayed yesterday. Let's do this guys.
