It's been raining hard at Henley Wednesday and Friday and today's
results are looking ominous for the weekend

Berks wins 40
Bucks wins 24

Didn't we see an article in Regatta saying that this stream nonsense was
a myth and that losing finallists last year were complaining about
nothing?
An interview with the lock keeper upstream or something.

The way I read the article (from what I remember) it was backing up the
arguments of the losing finallists...

Certainly several crews came through astonishingly fast in the last hundred
metres of the course, all on the same station (I forget which, I was drunk)
on Weds and a few on Thurs as well - more than I would attribute to "just a
push"...

Not as bad as feared Saturday's results are

Berks wins 21
Bucks wins 18

And Sunday was 10 Berks, 8 Bucks.

I didn't think it was too bad at all.  We raced twice in Bucks and
won, and lost in Berks.  By a third of a length...

I've been a berk all my life and seldom if ever a buck, so why did I never
win races?
