I'll make it simple, if you didn't read my comment precisely and just went all feral about GPS schools (you brought them into it not me.) The point is: You (and the last blogger) seem to miss the point that all the other competitors (in the 3rd VIII) are there to race their grade. By all means KW race but what about going in (to the 3rd VIII) as an invitational entry if the crew is, as stated by ELM, so fast? Maybe if they had waited four or five events they could have rowed in the SB 2nd VIII or SB 1st VIII that would have been more their standard (as times demonstrated). As stated, I'm all for their rowing programme, you must have missed that point too.
