Last Sunday my team competed in the first competition of the year, the Gyas Winter Competitions. A race over 3 kilometer and it had to be covered as quickly as possible. We could start first with our 8+ in our block. That's good, because you don't have any trouble with other boats and the waves they make. Just after we started a experienced 4* team caught up with us, but fortunately we could stay ahead of them by 10 seconds.
To keep this post short I can report that we were the fastest team of our club, but not the fastest of the entire competition. The club eight of Gyas was some 45 seconds faster then our team, but that's comparing apples and oranges. The rest of the eights were somewhat faster of slower then our team. We did pretty well. Or finish time was 0:11:03. Not bad compared to the rest of the results. All that's left now are some photo's.
