How to tan?
The second most important thing about Mays rowing (after bumps)... bronzing.
Stay completely covered at all times to avoid any chance of a tan (see A. Lea-Cox)  15%
Wear an all-in-one and get strap marks (see people too busy rowing to care about looks)  48%
Wear only one strap and then switch at the lock to avoid too much of a strap mark whilst still being able to row well (see T. Coker)  6%
Push both straps down to avoid strap marks and (if female) hope it holds and (if male) hope it doesn't (see Women's hour)  12%
Go topless and just take the fines for indecent exposure on the chin (see the bank balance decrease)  18%

Blue and gold bikinis?
It has been suggested that the new women's Mays kit should be blue and gold bikinis. Less (/fewer?) tan lines, and proof, if needed, that we are (all) female. Aye or Nay?
Yes please!  63%
No thanks!  37%
