The Club's Results
Lent Term 2017
Sat 28th January
A timed headrace in two parts, length 2x2000m.
Early Lent term race practice for many college crews.
Head of the Nene
Sat 4th February
An important regional 2500m/5000m timed head race
Several of the top college crews travel to race at Peterborough, for this invariably unpleasant but key race in preparation for the bumps.
Newnham Short Course
Sat 4th February
A timed head race from the Motorway Bridge to the Railway Bridge (approx 2k)
Now changed to a 2k race.
Fri 10th February
A timed head race from Head station to Peter's Post.
The last timed head race on the Cam before Lents - and a useful form guide with many college boats competing.
Sat 18th February
A side-by-side knock out regatta on the reach, over 1100m
An event for college crews run in 3 divisions. For many crews, the last race practice before the bumps, and a popular event.
Tue 28th February - Sat 4th March
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.
Women's Head of the River Race
Sat 11th March
The Women's Eights Head, on the Tideway in London.
The largest women's only race in the country, raced in early March over the Championship course on the Tideway in London
2nd Trinity Challenge Sculls
Tue 14th March
A timed sculling race for singles, doubles and pairs over a course from Little Bridge to Peter's Posts, run by First and Third.
This is an historic event, but recently has been run continuously since only 1999. The event is for single sculls, both shell and clinker, as well as double sculls. In 2010 pairs were invited to enter for the first time.
Wed 15th 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.
