Wednesday
Rowed over
After a reasonable start, and watching the 8th VIII being bumped behind us, we seemed to slow down quite a lot. Although we were then pseudo-overbumped by a fast-moving scum boat from the GoR crews, they were actually four places behind due to the awarding of a technical row-over to the crew in front of them. Luckily for us, this meant that their bump on us was disallowed. (James)
Thursday
Bumped by Sidney Sussex IV
A strong start saw us hold off Sidney IV and gain to within three-quarters of a length of Catz V, but a bit of confusion in the boat meant that the required push never came and Sidney closed us down. (James)
Friday
Bumped by St. Edmund's II
Our best start yet was complemented by Eddies steering into the far bank off the start, but they came back very strong and we didn't answer them as quickly as we needed to. (James)
Saturday
Bumped by St. Catharine's V
This was the first day when we managed to put down some substantial power. However, the entire row up, race and row back were dogged by a complete inability to sit the boat, which forced late squaring and impacted on timing when rating higher. We held off Catz V for quite a while, but in the end it was our technique that failed us. (James)
