Just a quick post, but let me say that coming fourth sure is a hard pill to swallow! That being said, today was our best race of the weekend and we are walking away from this weekend with confidence that we are headed in the right direction and motivation to make every stroke count so that we can move on up come Lucerne and the 2014 World Champs. For those of you who didn't have a chance to watch the race or look up the results, we came 4th to New Zealand by less than half a second.
Tomorrow it's back to Corgeno, Italy for a busy two weeks of training and prepping for World Cup three in Lucerne.

Well, here we are... the 2014 Rowing World Cup II on lac d'Aiguebelette in France. After some successful months of training and trialling back in Canada, we have once again formed the crew of Goodfellow, Cameron, Zeeman, and myself in the women's quadruple sculls event (W4x). I am both excited and nervous for our first race today at 12:25pm France time (3:25am BC time, 6:25am in Ontario). There are eleven boats in our event, and the progression is: time trial, heats, reps, and finals. There will be two heats and the first boat in each heat will skip the reps and go straight to the finals.Time for the fun to start!!!
