Captain's Log 04/06
5th June 2018
The metwagon (Scott, Ian, Nick, Sam, Gigi) raced in Tier 3 and Tier 4 4+ at Metropolitan Regatta on Saturday. Some tough racing against crews that would have registered as Senior and IM1 status under the old points system; Cygnet came fourth in their T3 heat, just missing out on a final place. The T4 race was a stronger field, and a small mistake on the start line left a little too much to do to catch back up to the pack and also finish the race strongly. On to the next race, watch this space.
