Lent Bumps
Tue 23rd - Sat 27th February
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.

Talbott Cup
Tue 8th March
A side-by-side knock out regatta on the reach, over 800m
An event for the lower boats, who haven't generally got on for Lent Bumps

3rd men's VIII (3rd men's VIIIs): Beat Robinson M3 by 2.5 lengths in the 1st round and Lost to Jesus M3 by 2.5 lengths in the 2nd round

Drumps
Fri 11th March
Like bumps but illegal and with alcohol.
Drumps involves a course of approximately 8 stations (with marshals, usually unbribable) at which members of a racing crew must each drink a particular alcoholic beverage in the shortest possible time, before moving onto the next station and a different drink. The aim is to both 'drump' crews ahead and ultimately to finish Head of the Drumps. Club formal hall generally completes the evening.

Head of the River Race
Sat 19th March
A huge head race 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. The course is 4 1/4 miles, from Mortlake to Putney.
