Peter looking up times for race.
Women’s A 8+ and Women’s D 8+ both made their finals in a very competitive field.
Mark P for getting a medal in his first regatta (so not fair)
George and Arthur for winning the E+ pair by 0.5 seconds. Even though they were clear of the field by a time zone, they had to beat some boats by over 20 seconds to win. They did so, just barely.
