Mays 2011 - M2 Day 4

Bumped Emmanuel II

Given what was at stake today, the rowing up to the start was as relaxed and calm as we had managed all week. Barring one slight mishap where our boat almost blew into the middle of the river at marshalling, we were perfectly prepared.

Bumped Selwyn II

Remarkably, we managed to be in the boat for the two hours that it didn't rain! After yet another delay to our division while part of the W3 division was re-rowed, we were back in the boat and ready to go.

Bumped LMBC III

Mays 2011 - M3 Day 2

Rowed Over

We knew today’s bump was going to be a tough one. We had Downing III in front of us chasing an abysmal Selwyn III boat. The row down the start felt hopeful and the practice starts were better than what we had done so far.

Mays 2011 - M3 Day 1

Bumped FaT IV

After a strong performance in the Lent Bumps, M3 looked forward to take on Mays. With a rate meter that had never worked, the crew were still pretty enthusiastic and keen to get their revenge from last year’s bump (from FaT IV under dubious circumstances). The practice starts were scrappy with a lot of missed strokes but spirits were high. The start was delayed with the riverboat Georgina lazing along the river with a lot of tourists keen to see some bumping action, oblivious to the fact that they had made a lot of people very angry.
