Back on the water in the afternoon in a five-boat field the Ephs got off to a slightly slower start over the first 500 meters and that opened the door for Abingdon Day (1st – 1:30.69) and Oxford Brookes (2nd – 1:31.02 to establish themselves as the leaders. The ephs finished the first 500 meters in 1:31.89).

Abingdon School fell behind Oxford Brookes at 1,5000 meters, but they put the hammer down over the final 500 out stroking Oxford Brookes by nearly four seconds to win in 6:24.09. Oxford Brookes' 6:26.15 was good enough for second and the Ephs took third with a time of 6:26.15.
