The Club's Results
Lent Term 2001
Sat 20th January
A timed headrace in two parts, length 2x2600m
Beginning of term race practice for a minority of college crews
Head of the Nene
Sat 3rd February
A 5000m timed head race of Regional Importance
Most of the top college crews travel to race at Peterborough, for this invariably unpleasant but key race in preparation for the bumps. The men's 1st VIII is unable to race due to the flu bug.
Newnham Short Course
Sat 3rd February
A timed head race from the Little Bridge to the Railings (approx 1600m)
With many 1st and some 2nd VIIIs at Peterborough, the majority of crews entering are lower boats. Our men's 3rd and 4th VIIIs compete and perform brilliantly.
Fri 16th February
A timed head race over a course shortened because of the floods - Gunshed to Peter's Posts
An event for college crews, usually of minor importance but attracting a large field this year because of the cancellation of the Bedford Head last week.
Sat 17th February
A side-by-side knock out regatta on the reach, over 1100m
An event for college crews run in 3 divisions. The last race practice before the bumps and a popular event.
Lent Bumps Getting-on Race
Fri 23rd February
The 2000m qualifying race for the Lent Bumps
The Lent Bumps are the focus of the term for college rowing, but only those boats finishing higher than 10th from the bottom of last year's races are automatically entered. All other crews - a considerable number this year - must compete for the 10 places available.
Tue 27th February - Sat 3rd March
The famous Cambridge University Bumps on the River Cam
The focus of the year so far. The Lent Bumps are smaller and less prestigious than the May Bumps, but nevertheless involve 69 men's and 52 women's crews.
Thu 15th March
"a regatta unlike any other..."
A fun post bumps regatta for mixed crews, with head starts for crews in fancy dress and widescale bribery of marshalls and race officials...!
Head of the River Race
Sat 17th March
A huge head race down-river on the Tideway (tidal river Thames) over the University Boat Race course
The largest annual VIIIs head race in the country, attracting most rowing clubs and many University and College crews.
