As another Lent Bumps campaign drew to a close, we’d done such a good job that I forgot to write about the final day, caught up in our wild celebrations. M2 got bumped. Again. But drawing positives, having started +9 on their position last year, they still find themselves +5 compared to last year. It’ll […]


A rainy day on the river couldn’t dampen the momentum of our top boats, who both continued their rampages up their respective divisions. Returning from their rest day, M2 were out for revenge, hoping to bounce back from their newly acquired status as sandwich boat. The CamFM commentator was adamant that they looked strong from […]

NM1 - neck and neck with Jesus after the first 250m.

Corpus made a promising start to the novice race season, with all crews putting on exciting displays against some tough competition.
