5th, 6th and 7th in Heats for GB C2s

Just a quick update (a day late I know) on our qualifying race at the European Champs. To the best of my memory it was the GB C2s strongest showing for a long time. Ourselves, Burgess/Pitt and Florence/Hounslow qualified in 5th, 6th and 7th positions respectively. All three crews were within 0.2sec of each other which was pretty cool although I should mention David and Richard were 2 secs quicker but with a touch. This boded very well for our team race qualifying and indeed it turned out pretty well. We were quick enough to win qualifying but Etienne and I picked up a 2sec penalty so we qualified in 3rd.

We were pretty happy with our paddling all day and my recovering abdominal injury held up well so that was good.

It was a fun days racing but tomorrow the real business starts, we'll be racing Individual Semi-Finals tomorrow around 10:40am (CET) and then the Team Finals are later on in the afternoon. I think there is live video available and results via the official website below.

Cheers Tim
