Bumps – the final reckoning

July 26th, 2009

So, we went out on Friday night for our final attempt at the bumps – and once again we weren’t fast enough off the start. We got bumped about 300m into the race, and rowed home for a beer to celebrate our wooden spoons…

But it was all good fun, and with something of a scratch crew (the crew was different every night, and some of our substitutes hadn’t rowed for years) it was always unlikely that we’d be as together as some of the crews that had been training for months. I’ve enjoyed it, and will definitely be doing more rowing over the coming year.
