Day two continues and more exciting stuff for Corpus Christi Boat Club with some good performances by numerous boats. The crews were treated to brilliant, if somewhat overpowering, sunshine today. The pasty white folk amongst us required industrial quantities of sun cream. The day started slightly poorly with Corpus M3 putting up all the resistance […]

And so the May bumps begin; the pain, the blisters, the months of early outings and ergo training (or from the perspective of a cox, the luxury of being taken on sedan chair for a river tour twice a week) finally becomes worth it. Corpus’ bumping season got off to a bit of a anti-climatic […]
