Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1405 Just time to grab a coke at King's Cross before ploughing on to Hammersmith to watch the race... sorry, The RaceTM
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1406 Spot-the-boat. It's Isis and Goldie there under Hammersmith Bridge. Honest.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1407 Isis storm past a length ahead of Goldie. They'll be overtaken later on, unfortunately.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1408 Nick, Airlie and Dom not letting Isis' defeat dampen their spirits in preparation for the big race.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1409 Airlie. Included here because each new picture of her attract about a thousand hits from Australia (hi there Down Under :)

Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1413 Don't ask... I have no idea
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1414 Are you scared? I'm scared.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1415 Dom and Nick gaze into the distance as the boats round the corner
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1416 Standing on the bank of the Thames... ummm.. watching the action on a big screen :)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1417 Ladeeeezzzz and, well, ladeeeezzzz, Mr. James Lea Blackham

Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1422 Dave has an "I can't believe I've just spoken to someone for five minutes on the mobile without realising he was stood next to me" moment on Dom's shoulder
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1423 Fellow Magdalenite Mark Hodge turns up...

Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1426 Ah, it'd have been rude not to pass this pub without calling in for a pint (or three)...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1427 ...so in we went...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1428 ...only to be greeted by Magdalen's very own tiger, Mr. George "Growell" Rowell
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1429 (who was met with suspicion in some quarters)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1430 but couldn't stop Mr. Blackham from looking smooooth. His style, as always, was impeccable.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1431 Nasty scare on the tube when Airlie almost became another victim of The Killer Hair.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/1432 Dave turns trainspotter to prove that Virgin Trains does have a sense of humour... the locomotive was called "Mission: Impossible" :)
