Ooops that was bad.. Like everyone else who enjoyed the strong head wind today. Did I say strong? Stuff me no excuses but we were just under 9min in the pair and fifth in the heat. This has us in a rep tomorrow so not a great day. For much of the day since the jokes and laughter about what it was like out on the water have flow thick and fast. So nothing special to report apart from the fact it is the slowest pairs race I have ever rowed. That's 17 years of racing pairs and it was at least 1min slower than the previous best – worst time. For now we wait and tomorrow we better perform or could be watching the final from the side lines. Nah after today I would hope it can't get worse. Then tonight we went down and the water was great. So who knows what tomorrow will be. One things for sure we will be on the front foot as there aint much point being at the back of the field. No fun there.
