May Bumps

Wednesday
Bumped by Vets School
I was on the bank for this one. Really, I didn't think it was a very fair race. The Vets and Addies crews were both considerably more experienced and should be a couple of divisions higher. Unfortunately, their inconsistency from year-to-year means that they stay low, occasionally going up lots. So, W3 got the worst of it here. The girls had a decent start but shortened up under pressure from behind; the lesson for the next race is to keep everything a bit more controlled and not to panic! Good luck! (Erica)
Thursday
Bumped by Selwyn II
Basically I think everyone learned a lot from today's race. There were a combination of factors - feeling rushed to spin and get ready, not being prepared for the start gun and therefore not starting properly. Selwyn closed on us very quickly and there was effectively nothing we could do to hold them off. We had to face the fact that we are in the middle of a lot of really good crews and everyone had some take home points after the race (S.L. Stoneman)
Friday
Bumped by Newnham III
Today's race was a massive improvement. We started off really well, starting to make some advance on Selwyn. We held off Newnham quite well, until they started gaining on us very quickly, and again there was nothing we could do to hold them off. We put up a good fight though, and are definitely more prepared for Eddies in the morning (S.L. Stoneman)
