Who deserves to call themselves FaT/BPBC multisport champions?
1. Rowing - For the second year running, FaT M1, M2 and W1 all beat their BPBC counterparts.
2. Football - In the inaugural fixture, FaT win 2-1 after BPBC have an injury-time goal disallowed.
3. Golf - BPBC run out comfortable 7-2 winners, and also win the Womens' (sic) and Adaptive version.
4. Cricket - The fixture is rained off twice; BPBC seem to have the gods on their side and retain their title by default.

So two wins apiece, but are some worth more than others? Who wins overall?

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%
