hey helen did you see me did you see me! I was a regular clare boatie today! and we got through to the semi finals!!!!!!!! wooo i love victory. But queens put us out as well, i was a bit disappointed with my performance, i spannered a couple of times, really lost my timing, and was close to catching a crab a couple of times! But was odd, on the second race my body wasnt hurting so much, i was more exhausted than anything! We could have won, I think the rushing was a bit of a problem....why do ALL novices boats rush! I think that might have caused me to go out of time, i wasnt paying attention at all cos i was having trouble feathering. I think i might have cost the crew a bit of distance, but not enough to mean we would have won!
