W2 - May Bumps 2016 - Day 2

Day two of this year's Mays campaign dawned on the Cam, as bright and sunny as the first. W2 had a simple race plan: we would go out and row no harder than day one, but a lot smarter. With less pressure from behind, we settled into a more sustainable rhythm, and rowed with a much better technique. As expected, the crews ahead and behind bumped out, leaving us chasing Jesus W3 down the reach for the overbump. They held us well, but the crew never gave up, pushing all the way to the line, and were met by a raucous M2 as they pushed off from marshalling. Tomorrow we are chasing Selwyn W2, currently down 2, and are chased by Pembroke, up 2.
