Lent Bumps Diary 2014 – M2 Day 2

Embedded reporter Mr Tom Duggins Esq. was given plenty of material on Day 2 and hopefully on Day 3 we’ll be giving him 2 races worth of material… Here’s his latest race report: “…for tho’ eclipses of thought are to me a living inhumement and equal to the dread throes of suffocation, turning the valley […]

Lent Bumps Diary 2014 – Day 1: The Best of The Rest

The Corpus campaign got off to a mixed start this Lents, with an overall score of +0 from day 1. M2, with their now traditional truculent troll at the helm, started the day, jostling for a higher position after promotion to M3. The view from the cox’s seat (disputed from all other credible and non-credible […]

Lent Bumps Diary 2014 – M2 Day 1

M2 have convinced their literary powerhouse of 2k13 (Mr Tom Duggins Esq.) to return as an embedded reporter and timekeeper for Lents this year. Here is his first post from the front line: M2 Lent Bumps Report: Day One “I’ve walked over much of it on a daily basis. Taken thousands of photographs, kept an […]

Emma Sprints 2013

Corpus made a promising start to the novice race season, with all crews putting on exciting displays against some tough competition. Kicking off, NM2, dressed in t-shirts and ties, attempted to beast it down the reach at an impressively high rate – a little higher than they’d practised! Unfortunately, this didn’t quite pay off, and […]

Head of the River Race

—-UPDATE—- It got cancelled, we didn’t go :( —-ORIGINAL—- Corpus are going to HORR! For the first time since 2002, the men’s squad will be sending their 1st VIII to race on the Thames over the championship course. We’re number 377 (can only go up!), so if you’re around in London we’d love to have […]

Lent Bumps Diary 2013 – Day 5 (part 2)

Day 5 started badly for Corpus, words which I never thought I’d have to write. Corpus M2 traded out their talismanic 6-man, one Giacamo Bignardi, and replaced him with an even more inspiring specimen of Mr Todd Davidson – a man whom many in the crew had relied upon during the term but who had […]

Lent Bumps Diary 2013 – Day 5 (part 1)

Apologies for the delay in uploading the final day’s reports, PhD and all that. Here is Mr T. Duggins final thoughts on M2’s successful(ish) bumps campaign: M2 Bumps Report Day 4   Interior.

Lent Bumps Diary 2013 – Day 4

The Byron-Barge decided that they wanted today off, which conveniently tied in with their division’s rest day. Thank God. The heavyweight men were still in action however, determined to make up for yesterday’s shortened race. After a solid start, it soon became clear that the boys were more interested in bumping on Saturday in front […]

Lent Bumps Diary 2013 – Day 3 (part 2)

Corpus’ finest is back; here’s some more exquisite thoughts from Mr T Duggins: M2 Bumps Report – Day Three The barge with the man still straining at the oar had gone out of sight under the arch of the bridge, as through a gate into another world. A bizarre sense of solitude stole upon me, […]
