Monday – First IV beat Emma I by 26s
Emma were taking a long time to get ready on the start, whilst we were straight into position with some expert coxing from Will. Unfortunately, by the time they were eventually ready, we’d been blown towards the far bank, and the umpire proceeded to set us off at an angle. Despite this, the start was great and the crew settled into a good rhythm, holding Emma off comfortably. Around the first corner everything went well, but somewhere between the gut and the plough the rudder managed to snag some debris and started to cause problems for Will.… Continue Reading
King’s College, Cambridge and St Catharine’s College, Cambridge will be racing Eton College in the first round of the Temple Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday at 15:35. It would be great to have as much King’s support as possible in Henley for the race.
Training is going well and the crew is looking forward to the race.

M1 – Rowed Over
M2 – Bumped by Clare Hall
M3 – Bumped by Magdalene IV
After three bumps for three days, M3 were determined to at least make it around a corner or two on their final day. And make it around said corner we did! But then we were bumped by Magdalene IV, who managed to gain rapidly once they got out of their start sequence. Spoons were accepted with bucket loads of general merriment from a crew who had clearly had a wonderful, if unsuccessful, week!
W1 – Bumped Magdalene – Rowed over as Sandwich Boat
W2 – Bumped Homerton II
Saturday started with some drama, when 15mins before we were due to meet at the boathouse we learned that 7 was being sick and wouldn’t be able to row – it was a panicked for a short time as we tried desperately to find a sub.… Continue Reading
M1 – Bumped Christ’s M1
Friday looked to be M1′s biggest challenge yet for several reasons. Firstly, the Christ’s M1 crew we were chasing had consistently beaten the crews we had so far bumped. Secondly the Pembroke M1 crew that Christ’s were chasing looked slow enough to give Christ’s an easy bump. Thirdly we had an enforced substitution just 4 hours before the race; the heroic Fletcher agreed to join his third bumps race of the day, after 2 rowovers with M2, in place of the incapacitated Alge, who was violently re-acquainting himself with his most recent meals. After an extended warmup to bed in the crew changes, we proceeded to have a very focused and aggressive row down.… Continue Reading
M1 – Bumped Fitzwilliam M1
Following a very good row down to the start, M1 were confident of a second bump against a Fitz crew that always looked precarious in the top division. A much improved start saw us quickly pull away from the Emma crew we bumped yesterday, and drive on at a very good speed. The conditions were much improved from the first day, and we hit a strong powerful rhythm, moving steadily through one, two and three whistles. We had discussed a final killer move, and Will’s coxing calls were spot on as we accelerated into an overlapping position with Fitzwilliam, their cox being forced to concede halfway round first post corner.… Continue Reading
M1 – Bumped Emma M1
After a solid row down, and buoyed with confidence by some great sessions in the preceding week, M1 pushed out into a strong gusting headwind on the first day of bumps with optimistic excitement. After an hesitant first few strokes, we hit a strong rhythm and quickly moved up on the Emmanuel crew. one minute in we were just 6 foot away, but Emma gave it their all and it took another minute to get the bump, finally hitting them at the exit of first post corner. We took plenty of encouragement from a very satisfying row, but also look to improve on certain aspects as the week continues.… Continue Reading
This year’s May Bumps run from Wednesday 12th June to Saturday 15th June. Support from everyone and anyone would be most appreciated on every day of Bumps, but in particular KCBC will be hosting our annual marquee on First Post Corner from about midday on Saturday 15th June.
Our team at the marquee will be supplying refreshments throughout the day, from 10.30am – 6.30pm. The marquee is free to attend, and we will be selling a ‘Strawberries and Fizz ticket’ for £10. This ticket is worth 2 glasses of chilled fizz and a punnet of fresh strawberries with cream.

M1 – Bumped Robinson I for Blades
The final day of Lents had arrived. The day of reckoning. No one dare mention the possibility of the B word. St Catharine’s had continued their progress up the Bumps chart to put Robinson I in front of us, with a chance to get our own back for last year. Catz had even decided to raise the stakes by promising us all a pint if we could take down Robinson before First Post Corner. Anyone would think them worried about getting bumped back! With everything to play for, this was probably the most nerve-racking day by far!… Continue Reading
