Bumps, day 3

July 24th, 2009

After Emma’s instructions that we needed to “give it everything on the start” we shot off at some considerable speed – in fact, I very nearly came off my sliding seat because I was pushing too hard. We got within a length (60′ – the boats start 90′ apart) of the boat in front when suddenly someone caught a crab and it was soon all over. But maybe tonight we can redeem ourselves and avoid getting wooden spoons (the traditional prize for getting bumped every night).
