HS/Scholastic: Groton School girls vs. Middlesex School
May 2, 2007; Bare Hill Pond, Harvard, MA

Submitted by Andy Anderson.

Distance: 1300 m.
Conditions: Cross wind at start turned to headwind through the middle of the course. For the first race, 4th boats, there was little wind. It came up quite a bit just before the 3rd boats and continued building through the 2nd and 1st. The wind made each successive race slower - more headwind and choppier water.
Comments: In the third boat race, groton was leading by a length and a half with 30 strokes to go when they crabbed and stopped dead. Middlesex passed them before hey could get going. In the warmup for the race, the Middlesex 3rds hit a log and apparently knocked off their skeg, although they did not realize it. Their steering was erratic. It had some effect on the race, I am sure, although exactly what, is hard to know.
