May Bumps – Saturday

W1 – Bumped by Trinity Hall W1, now 4th in Div 2

Written by: Martha Crass

We went into our last race buoyed up by the impressive rowover the boat had executed the day before: we were sure that this time, Catz was ours. We’d been on their tail for two of the previous three days of Bumps; today would be third time lucky, surely? However, the busy week of racing and post-exam hysteria was taking its toll, and with Tit Hall chasing again we knew that one way or another we wouldn’t be making another rowover this time. This was it.… Continue Reading

May Bumps – Friday

W1 – Rowed over 3rd in Div 2

Written by: Rebekka Thur

On Friday we went into the race determined not to make it easy for Tit Hall chasing us. After having been bumped by Homerton the day before, we knew we were in for a row over, with Tit Hall behind us who had gained some ground on us on the first day. The W1 Bumps campaign had already been going better than we could have hoped for after a several-week lapse in our normal training schedule leading up to Bumps, and having a Blue subbing in on Friday, we were definitely ready to go all out on this race.… Continue Reading

May Bumps – Thursday

W1 – Bumped by Homerton W1, now 3rd in Div 2

Written by: Isabelle Read

After an exhausting and unexpected row over yesterday, W1 were still pumped and ready to take on Catz W1 again. Informed by Roger that there’d be no way we’d reach the Reach without having bumped or been bumped (he was wrong yesterday), we were ready for a quick race. The four-minute cannon went off. The countdown began, and the longest 3 minutes in history passed before the one minute cannon as we had to wait for a cruiser to go by. A nervous, but quick start gave us one whistle on Catz within the first minute.… Continue Reading

May Bumps – Wednesday

W1 – Rowed over 2nd in Div 2

Written by: Tabitha Biller

After a slightly inelegant slide out of the first division in last year’s May bumps, the crew was keen to build on the progress we had made in Lents. Having finished a couple of seconds behind Catz in Champs Head we knew that catching them would be tough but not impossible, while we would have to push hard to keep off Trinity Hall behind us. Roger’s usual technique of sneaking as many rolling starts as possible into our warm up made up for the fact that a delay to the division left no time for a standing start and proved that our series of last minute outings had been crucial to sharpening up our technique!… Continue Reading
