Tuesday
Overbumped by Queens' II
W2 put in a super strong effort today (almost all of the crew's first ever Bumps race!). They held off Jesus W3 in a VERY tense sandwich situation (Jesus had overlap for a good few seconds before being bumped by Downing W2). Ellie (the amazing cox) said she was considering conceding, but then she saw the determination and grit of the wonderful crew and was like HELL NO. She called a power 10 (although the crew didn't hear this as the cox box died...) and FaT escaped! Unfortunately a very fast Queens W2 managed to catch FaT just after Ditton. The crew is determined to put up more of a fight tomorrow (hopefully aided by a cox box)! Much love girls, I'm very proud xxx (M.E. Crane)
Wednesday
Bumped Jesus III
A nice and easy day for W2. Due to Jesus W3 having a broken cox box, all the crew had to do was do a (wonderful I must say) start and then pull in behind Jesus for the Bump! YES GIRLS :D Bring on Friday! (M.E. Crane)
A rather unusual race, as races go. First, with the cannons locked inside someone’s house and the owner locked outside of the house, an alternative system had to be implemented. A representative from every crew simultaneously set up a stopwatch, and the bank parties called the cannons themselves.

Unfortunately, the race was very short-lived. Fifty metres in, they rowed past Jesus’ station, who were unable to race after issues with their cox box. Praise should go to Ellie, who paid attention in the Coxes’ Meeting, didn’t row into a stationary crew, and pulled in quickly to claim the bump. (K. Ergene)
