    Dear Cygnets,

    I hope everyone is doing well. Apologies for the delay.

    We had a fabulous Weekend in Oxford City Regatta:

    Saturday:
    1x Open – Early Morning. Missed the win in his heat for 2/3 L. Fantastic race though, however I would never understand why the umpires don’t warn you about the trees!
    8+ made it into the Final where found a more experienced opposition and it was not to be.

    Lunch Time Sprints - we lost against a young crew from University Utrecht 

    4+ - Our development crew noticed the effort of the morning but lost against the winner of the event.
    1x - Good race but it was not to be, at the end 4L behind the winner of the event.

    Saturday Night Fever: Pizza & Good Party in the Oxford City’s Clubhouse 😉 – No pots but a lot of shots.

    Sunday:
    1x – Open Band 3.  Early Morning – after 20 strokes, realised was not a good idea to be drinking shots the night before
    1x – Open Band 2. After 20 strokes, realised was really not a good idea to have been drinking shots the night before
    8+ – Good race but stronger opposition. 2.5 lengths behind at the end

    Lunch Mix Sprints with BBL – Good Fun! We made into the semis – we need to enter more of these ones.

    4+ Made it to the Final – against 4length Cantabrigian Rowing Club
    4x Made it to the Final - fantastic race – 1/2 length behind at the end after 3 crabs and finishing like started with(in 😉) the trees.

    Summarising: Loads of racing (congratulations all), 3 finals, a few drinks for the soul, loads of dancing, loads of fun (check the pics in the social media), we will be there next year again…
