Tim and Richard M were rammed just before their E2x heat. Bow of Buffalo cut open.
Organizers were nice - delayed their heat - let them go to shore to patch it up. Thank you very much!
Tim was nervous (a rare sight), fell on the dock and cracked the carbon rigger.
A role of packaging tape later, they rowed to the start and came in second (despide having the bow full of water …). Through to the final this afternoon!
THANK YOU very much Fabio Selvig of Filippi US / Elite Rowing to provide a replacement F17, We really appreciate your help!!!!!
