Overbumped by Emmanuel

This wasn't the start we wanted.

We never thought this would happen.

We knew Emma were quick;

We had that proved to us today.

Emma were more experienced than us.

Emma were quicker than us.

And that showed.

We were unlucky,

But there is much to be learned from today.

We've kept our heads high;

Let's break Christs tomorrow

And improve our Bumps records.

Bumped Christ's

Maggie, behind us,

Had said they were confident.

We bumped on First Post.

This start was our best.

Rate high, and the girls moved boat.

Wow. My first whistle.

Christs moved on Medwards

But we moved faster than them.

We bumped on First Post.

Maggie were three lengths

Away when we hit Christs bow.

They thought they were fast?

(K. Ergene)
With only one goal and nothing to lose we set off strong giving everything we had from the cannon. After every push we continued to gain on Christ's the sound of the whistle music to our ears. Stroke after stroke we committed to the lifts gritting our teeth through the pain. Our reward came with a jerk in the boat as we finished our race within 500m. It may not have been the bumps campaign we were hoping for, but I'm glad to say it definitely finished on a high. (B.C. Ladd)

to hospital

but still pushed.

Do the men


think girls

don't have grit?

(K. Ergene)
This was never going to be an easy race with a comparatively inexperienced crew, and yet we came through strong and gave it everything we had. Longer and harder than anything we had done as a crew before we continued on overtaking 2 crews. Overall an incredible experience (yet a little painful if I may say so myself), and a day I will never forget. (B.C. Ladd)
