Morning Cygnets!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Saturday Peterborough: we had two 4+ and 4x racing. Good weather but no luck at all. Everything went a little bit like a Buster Keaton movie. The 4s gained on experience and the 4x after a great start in lane 1, leading after 250m, hit a band of swans ( what an irony ..) , lost the control and hit the bank .... Another great story to tell in the bar though, you can blame the steerer ;)....

Next Stop/Last Stop, Oxford City (hopefully with no swans in the course) where we are racing on Saturday: 8+, two 4+, and a 4x  and on Sunday a 8+, 1x, 4+, and 4x.
