In the M1 division Caius, King’s, Robinson, Fitz and Churchill are all still on pace for blades, with special mention to Fitz and Churchill who have both moved up four spots in three days.
In the race for the Marconi day three was a day where Churchill pulled away from the field, with all three of the Churchill boats bumping up today they extended their points total to 32 points.
