After my first attempt I didn't think I would be in boat 1 that long. With a few days left and Morten still not on the list I gave it my last shot. Ended out only one tenth of a second behind Max which makes me very satisfied. I don't know where I could have gone faster. Felt terrible the last reps but well, it's worth it.
Considering the noise it makes when doing this one I won't be doing this anymore this week.

Sorry Max, being this close to boat 1 I felt the need to just give it one final shot after coming home from work. My wife having a drink with a friend, my kids two floors down busy with their PS4 I wouldn't be a nuisance to anyone.
The first reps were faster then the last time and though I felt like giving up practically all the time I kept on going knowing I could loose a bit in the later reps.
Finished 0.7 seconds faster then my previous one. Which is 0.6 faster then Max.
Though little time left you still have a chance Max.
Glad the sprints are over for now...

I'm sort of glad you had that dinner, Max. I have little doubt that you would have been able to beat my time if you'd really set your mind to it.
Now I earned my first boat 1 position. And probably my last. Only one boat 2 position before as far as I know.
