May Bumps 1998

1st men's VIII

Coxed by: Brad Parr

Wednesday
Bumped Trinity Hall
Hall were always going down. Start and stride to 38/39, then overlap at Grassy. We rowed alongside them at Ditton. (Matt)
Thursday
Rowed over
We closed to 1/4 length on Queens' at Grassy, when Jesus got Downing. Queens' put in a big push, and got clear water. We kind of expected Queens' to just fall back into us given how quickly we had caught up on them, however we rowed the whole course between 1/4 length and a canvas on them! We rated 36 from Ditton to the finish. Needless to say we were all bitterly disappointed. (Matt)
Friday
Bumped Queens'
We all got fired up for this, and also hardened the gearing 1 notch. We reckoned Queens' would hit Downing, so went for a bump before Ditton, and decided that this time we'd take it up, every time we got another hooter! Start to 45, settle to 39, hit them on Grassy. This time we applied the killer blow when it was necessary and hit them. They were 1/4 length away from Downing. We were fined for excessive celebration. (Matt)
Saturday
Bumped Downing
Having saved Downing from spoons on Friday, we hit them outside the Plough, but had overlap from Grassy. In the end a successful week. (Matt)
