Picture = 1000 Words at Windermere

You'll remember that one of the races at Windermere involved a three boat clash among Cal, ASU (mixed), and Princeton's 2V. This was unusual because the Windermere course is only two lanes. A picture was posted to row2k that shows this race headed down the course. Princeton is up, but Cal and ASU are locked in a tight battle. It's clear from this shot that Cal had the toughest steering job since they had to maneuver from their start in "lane zero" back onto the course. This shot also gives you an idea of the effect of the wind on the second half of the course, as it looks like all three boats are steering to starboard after being blown to port coming through the bridge.
