  1. Bigblade makes us look better than JET. Let's go with them!

  2. Observation: from ALL the shots of the Mens HORR, Stroke is consistently reaching out further at the catch than anyone else. Given the rest of the crew are consistently catching at the same angle, Stroke could be more flexible than the rest of the crew or perhaps overcompressing. There are no clear shots of angles at the finish, but it might be worth checking set-up for catch and finish positions (adding straws?)to find a better consensus on sweep angles.

  3. I agree with CM.

    Also: ouch:

  4. Actually, I spoke too soon. It may be true, but some of that may be optical illusion based on 6 being comparitively short at the catch.

  5. Despite any of the usual post critique I think you have all done the club and yourselves proud this weekend.

    Excellent work guys and gals ;-)
