Richard said: I think Lilie's dad took it away to be repaired.

I have no idea where it is now, as it wasn't in the boathouse. Anyone know?
It was on it's way back.. until Bryn asked for it back so that it could be BURNED! It's been lovingly restored by my Dad, and it would break his heart if you were to burn it. Therefore until everyone can at least learn to be subtle enough not to tell him, it's staying put..!!
(Actually the reason it's not been returned yet is simply that we don't have a trailer or any other way to return it).
There are also photos of the restoration process, which might interest some people enough to put them on the website?

Environ Mentalist said: Burn the Karlisch? BURN the KARLISCH? What?

Where is it, dare I ask? Or it it already causing climate change?

[I may have mentioned this before, but on a recent trip to Orleans, I noticed the club d'aviron there has a craft named "Jeanne d'Arc". I definitely think this would be one to get specifically to burn...)
Well, I didn't actually say burn it, but I think it's the only wooden eight left at the club. It was severely damaged in 2005, and I think Lilie's dad took it away to be repaired.

Richard said: Black Prince 5 was the boat that was burned.

I didn't see many more boats made of wood in the boathouse when I was there for the Lents. I suppose the Karlisch is still around somewhere, but whether you'd burn it is another thing.

An option is to acquire one from another club. I know my own club has a wooden Empacher VIII, which is owned by our Vets. I overheard them mentioning about getting a replacement the other day. Might have somehing to do with them using a hammer & chisel(?!) as well as a set of rigger jiggers whilst rigging for a race the other day. They might release it, but I'm not sure how much they would ask for it.

There were also a few wooden eights on show at the Lents from other clubs.

Environ Mentalist said: Can anyone tell me which boat went up in smoke after the Lents?

We must now be getting close to a point where further Headships will result in "boat MELTINGS" rather than "burnings", non?

And what will Cambridge City Council's Environmenal Health Officer have to say about all those nasty emissions of furans and dioxins in an urban area? Will we have to carry out our melting in a municipal incinerator? Or can we fit the burning site on the Backs with a "scrubber"? (this joke now officially open for business)

Anna Mc said: I've just confused my office by screaming very loudly.

Well done W1 - you are beyond great. This is so amazine and you overbumped the green monsters.

Churchill yesterday, Girton today, absolutely brilliant.
Thanks Anna!

We were beyond happy... we have avenged the crews bumped by Churchill and overbumped by Girton, and last year's Lent VIII by finishing two ahead of Pembroke.

Happy happy happy. I love bumps!

sarah said:

oh yeah, and is someone going to explain the first womens kit? looks vile on the photos... I must be getting old...
As Erica so truthfully explained, it's a lot of voodoo, really. A bit of arrogance mixed in with understatement to achieve the renowned FaT subtlety- I mean, who IS going to take a crew seriously that looks like the Cheshire Cat?

Also, the kit order didnt come through in time, nor did our plans for crew tops.

jpd said: Is this the first time that the mean position of our men's and women's top boats has been higher than that of LMBC?
No. At the end of day 2 in 1999, our men were head and the women had just rowed over in 9th place, one place behind LMBC. LMBC M1 had just been bumped down to 3rd by Caius, so we were ahead on mean position. If you are only counting positions at the end of the week's racing, I don't know.

Good luck in the WeHORR, hopefully the women will hit Newnham, and we'll get Caius and all will be well :-)

Andy - sadly not coming up tomorrow as am rowing in WeHoRR and suspect it may kill me either through exhaustion or cold. I shall be there in spirit though - vodka preferably.

sarah said: does the definition of uberblades allow for any sort of 'gaining more than 4 places in 4 bumps'?
That's been possible ever since bumps was introduced. I think Chris's definition of uber-blades was only meant to include five bumps on five different days. Any up 'more than 4' would need a different name; perhaps fat-blades?
