It’s been a good week for Corpus. Here’s a quick round up of the final day action. First and foremost, M3 got blades! No time wasted, they’d secured their bump before first post corner, with yet another incredible start, sealing their +4 rating, earning the right to toss a reluctant Sheenagh into the river, and […]

“I am ridiculously proud to be able to say that I coxed M2 today.” – Aneesh Shukla, cox The gods were not on M2’s side today. Wolfson M2, the crew who impeded us so badly on day one, were in front of us. Unfortunately we were not to get any revenge as they were chasing […]

Day the third of May Bumps 2014 has to have been one of the most pleasing for our club in recent history, with all crews really contributing something incredible to the day’s outstanding nature.

A fresh start, and gorgeous sunshine brought a fresh wave of optimism among the men and women of Corpus Boat Club, dropping the heavy baggage of mixed feelings at the first day’s occurrences.

M2 started throwing their toys out of the prom when M1 won their division at Champs’ Head. It wasn’t fair, it was declared, that they could drop down a division and win by default, and we had to row with crews that were actually in our division. The crew consensus: we had to smash one […]

HOLLA! With Signor Pepe back at Stroke, M2 decided to play some mind games in the Champs Head on Saturday. Our aim: to row at our absolute worst and still smash our competition for Bumps. The Balotelli Barge, shocked by the audacity of the race organisers telling us to start, decided to intentionally throw away […]
