Richard and Tim - 3d in Men's E 2x at Master Nationals 2017 in Oak Ridge

Congratulations!

Brief race report:

  • American Airlines let us down once more, Tim almost missing the race because of flight delays and cancellations - Richard to have to get up in the middle of the night to pick him up at airport
  • without a practice row, they came in 2nd in their heat - beating the nemesis by more than 20 seconds
  • In a tight Final, with a crab in the last meters, they missed 2nd place by 0.2 seconds (Tim not happy).

This was the last practice race before the Worlds in Bled. Happy to report that fade in the middle of the race has been eliminated, Tim can steer a straight course. They are ready. Rob and Felix just have to live up to that.
