Lent Bumps 2015: W1 Day One

Alas, today was not our day. W1 were bumped by Queen’s in the gut.

The boat should be proud of their race.  A cleanly executed start was followed by a lovely rhythm set up in the boat. Off of the motorway bridge we were within station to Caius, even with pressure behind from Queen’s. The boat continued to be lifted and flew to first post. However, here Queen’s managed to break our ranks and around the corner gained their whistles and unfortunately we had to concede into the gut.

It was a strong row by all and I hope you are all proud of yourselves. There were some interesting movements in the division that weren’t expected which will make this bumps series exciting. We will be coming back tomorrow fresh and ready for round two. Let’s see what the new day brings!
