Ed, Brad, Les and Bruce cruised serenely to the MasE.4x final at Henley Masters but were then well beaten by a Newark / Hollingworth Lake composite.
The veteran men (aka the breakfast club) have been working hard on their sculling technique this season with coaching from Katie & Kate in the winter and Sam in recent weeks. Our MasD and MasE crews have on occasion achieved a common and efficient style that makes them hard to beat. Unfortunately, the Henley final was a tense race in choppy water so that long ingrained faults and quirks of self-taught technique resurfaced. This was disappointing but the overall performance was a step up on previous years, thanks in no small measure to the efforts of the coaches.
