CHRISTOPHER BOON, the cox of the British eight, steered his crew into a lane buoy just before their heat in the world under-23 championships at Strathclyde near Glasgow. The race went ahead without the British crew, who transferred to an eight- year-old shell loaned by Strathclyde University. Although there are only five entries for the six-lane final, Germany objected to the decision to give Britain a bye into the outside lane of the final. Later the British eight was told to do a time trial. Eight other British crews qualified for the grand finals.
