The VIII versus Canford

In their race against Canford this morning The VIII moved out to a lead of around two lengths by the Fawley marker. The times to the Barrier (1.51) and to Fawley (3.10) were an improvement on yesterday’s, and compare favourably with the times posted elsewhere in the event. Canford pushed hard along the Enclosures which meant that The VIII, whilst not needing to push for the line, were not able to relax either. The margin on the line was half a length. No doubt the boys will feel there is more to come in the quarter-final tomorrow. Follow Eton’s progress at Henley via the ECBC blog:
