Not to be cynical by any means (especially since Dartmouth did so well) but I
understanding of Augusta is that it is more relevant to list which lane the
boats were in rather than quibble about the order of finish.

Oh yeah, the upstream course, even though it was straight this year
(hence the reduction to 1500m) is not very fair.

Actually, the advantage at the start seems to be in the lanes closer to
the Georgia shore (with lane 1 having the least current).  However,
this all changes, especially after the 750m mark, by which time lane 1
has the most current and lane 4 the least.  It's routine to watch boats
in lane 4, down by open water at the 750m, win easily.  Yes, it's no
fun.. However, I like the regatta because its a good testing ground for
the early spring, and you get put in valuable racing situations.  For
example, in our morning heat, we had the experience of Princeton, who
was in Lane 4, just lunching us in about 20 strokes (moving from 1/2
length down to about 1/2  length up) around the 1000m mark.  My boat
started to flail a little, so I now know that we need to work on
composure during races.  We were fortunate enough to draw the "fun"
lane for the final...

I was starter at Augusta in the morning, and referee in the
afternoon.  My observation is that lanes 3 and 4 ARE
advantageous in the last 500 meters of the 1500-m course.  On
the basis of unofficial results (I didn't keep the results and
lane assignements), on the order of 11 of 14 or 15 finals were
won by crews in lane 4.  Any statistical test worth mentioning
wold indicate that this is beyond the realm of pure chance,
given the seedings into the finals which did not award the
"high" lanes to heat winners.
