Waving, Not Drowning

Oh England!

And after the party, the pain: England draw with USA in their first game of the World Cup (Remember that Robert Green goalkeeping howler?)


Flagging Victory

A crew that makes a bump on all four days wins its blade, and gets to celebrate this by carrying their college flag in the boat as they row home. We witnessed a good number of victorious crews.
