May Bumps Getting-on Race
Fri 4th June
The 2000m qualifying race for the May Bumps
Entries in the bumps without positions in the finishing order of the May bumps last year, and up to 10 crews at the bottom of the last divisions, have to compete over a head race to "get on" to the bumps.

May Bumps
Wed 9th - Sat 12th June
The famous Cambridge University May Bumps on the River Cam
The highlight of the college rowing calendar involving a total of over 1500 students - 100 at Trinity.

Henley Royal Regatta
Wed 30th June - Sun 4th July
The historic, famous and prestigious international regatta for men's crews on the River Thames in Oxfordshire
College crews usually enter the 'Temple Cup' - a competition for student VIIIs. Although nowadays it is most unlikely that a College will win an event, clubs aspire to race and perhaps win a round or two past the famous enclosures. The top 2 or 3 Mays crews are often invited to attend, whilst others must earn a place in the qualifying race.
