Tuesday
Rowed over
Crews ahead bumped out. Crew behind bumped out. Went for the overbump on Caius. Solid effort from the crew, over a distance longer than we have rowed so far this term. We took five lengths off them, but needed six and a half. Same commitment tomorrow, but with more time on the slide, and we'll be flying. (Magnus)
Wednesday
Bumped by Girton II
The crew got off ok, and moved slightly towards Clare II ahead. Unfortunately, Girton II behind were moving up much more quickly. They made contact in 1st post reach.

On Friday, maybe another shot at the overbump on Caius III looks likely. (Richard)
Friday
Bumped by St. Edmund's
At the risk of sounding too cocky - the possibility of a double overbump on LMBC is not as silly as it sounds... (Dan Newton)
Saturday
Bumped by Peterhouse II
A good start, but Eddies just opened up a little ahead, and Peterhouse closed slightly. Peterhouse seemed to have some very optimistic whistles. The crew held Peterhouse well at about 3/4 length all the way to Grassy, but I'm not sure what happened next as we didn't make it round the corner. We parked on the outside and Peterhouse rowed past for the bump. Gutting. (Richard)
