Time 16:07 pm

just two bumps to tell you about in that division, exeter II got st hugh's and SEH II got corpus

Corpus will be looking to avoid spoons, and they have SEH II behind them who are on for blades, someone is going to end up being disappointed!

Add Comment Add Comment

Time 15:32 pm

some close racing in that division, with hugh's, worcester and corpus all staying with 1 lengths separation each until the finish, trinity got lincoln, Peter's and Jesus both rowed over with clearish water, ChCh II had overlap on Antony's but couldn't close in for the bump, wolfson caught LMH and wadham caught Hertford after a crab from hertford, all that yet to be officially announced though!

unfortunately the division has been delayed due to a tourist boat not listening to instructions and sitting on the racing line...but here come the EA to sort it out!

for those of you wondering what happened at the beginning of the day, Men's Div VII was klaxoned pretty quickly

Add Comment Add Comment

Time 15:02 pm

and there have yet to be any overbumps in the women's divisions this week...and only two in the men's divisions, both on the 1st day

Time 15:01 pm

looks like ChCh W2 will hold onto the W2 headship, unless a herculean effort from hertford II can wrestle it from them with an overbump
