Bumped Trinity Hall II
Good start to bumps. Christs maybe gained half a length initially but fell off round grassy and we took Tit Hall II out of Ditton with a neat bow to stern bump from Emma, although hopefully we can make shorter work of it against Girton II tomorrow.

*Edit* And I'll be keeping my eyes firmly in the back of Matt's head today after seeing those photos. (Andy S.)
Congrats, Christs had some very optimistic whistles, but only really came up to 3/4s of a length before you held them off at a length for the rest of the race, gradually wearing down Tit Hall the bumps was clinical. Well done! (Lorry)
The 2nd of 4 crews in a bit of a cluster, the crew did well to pull out a good row when it mattered. Bumped at the start of the Reach. (Martin P)
Rowed over
A long race, never got within range for a big push and magdalene were poor enough to get caught by morleys holt on the overbump. At least we have a nice target for tomorrow. (Thomas)
Unfortunately no match for Girton II - things getting tough now mixing it with 2nd VIIIs. However, a good looking result in the form of Magdalene getting overbumped ahead - the crew have to contend with a rising Christs II behind them tomorrow who were denied on the first day. (Martin P)
Bumped Magdalene II
Quick and easy. Same again tomorrow please! (Andy S.)
Bumped Robinson II
Well done guys!

When I first saw you paddle i thought you had an interesting 'style', but not a bad result for you. (Martin Y)
My final bumps race ever. *sniff* Being right next to the cannons wasn't the best place to start - we set off deafened by the reverberations. The stride didn't really happen and the killer bumps push was a bit limp, but we got them pretty quickly and a bump is a bump!

All the best to crews next year - I'll be back to watch! (Andy S.)
A good way to finish the week. The rowing wasn't pretty and due to the blast of the gun most of us couldn't hear the lengthen and stride calls. We were just faster than them.

Thanks to tom andrews who subbed in for Adam Csenki.

Good luck to those moving on to other things. (Thomas)
