Lent Bumps

Since the 19th Century the good, the bad and sometimes the downright ugly have donned their college colours in the form of tight lycra to compete in the Cambridge Bumps.  Last week saw Homerton row to glory in Lents with three of our four boats moving up, W2 by 5 places and M1 getting blades!  Number 7 in M1 boat summarised perfectly the feeling on day 3 as "Full of excitement, although not for all the right reasons".

Look out Mays Homerton have arrived!

The Boat Race

An historic weigh-in took place on Monday 4th March when the Women's and Men's Blues boats weighed in together for the first time.  Oxford Men's crew only just out-weighing the Cambridge Men's crew, with Cambridge's women coming in heavier by 3.55kg per woman.  Both boats have an Olympic flavour with each having two rowers who competed in the London Games.  The Cambridge Men's crew only features one British oarsman and for the first time ever four Americans.  The coxing seat remains firmly in British hands though with Homerton's Henry Fieldman making it a decade of British coxes for Cambridge.
