A fully loaded trailer left a fog bound and ice covered Tarn for Durham SBH. As dawn broke over Durham, the conditions were ideal with no wind or ice.
Durham SBH is an 1800m course starting with an early winding river section and finishing with an 800m sprint down the racecourse straight. The dividing point being the notorious narrows of the Elvet bridge which attracts a crowd of sightseekers watching crews negotiating the obstacle.
Tarn had entered 22 crews and won 5 events: James Smith won J15A 1x; James Martin won IM3 1x; Captain Katie won WMasA/B 1x; Megan & Emily won WIM2 2x-; Tors, Maya, Georgina, Jessica with Tom coxing won WJ14A 4x+.
Adam, Rufus, Chris and Jacob raced twice as J18A 4x- and IM2 4x- and showed great consistency by recording the same time in both races!
