The racing is now over and we’re getting ready to head out on our Eastern European adventure before ending up in Sweden on Sept 9.
The final day of racing was the 500m distance for the Open crew. We had another 4 hard races and just missed a spot in the Grand Final by 0.084 seconds. The Open 500 final is the final race of the event and everyone really wanted to be racing in it. However after the dissapointment of just missing out on taking part in the big show we composed ourselves well and then went out and won the Minor Final for a seventh overall standing.
For a relatively new crew I think we have to be pretty pleased with the 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th place standings in our races especially given how competitive the field is.
I’m not sure how much conectivity we’ll have in the next week so this might be the last post for a while.
