Row Over

Our goal for the last day of Bumps was a row over. After our third day of racing was cancelled, we were behind our latest bumpers, Emmanuel College W2, and we were chased by Homerton W2. Since Murray Edwards W3 failed to turn up, Emma only rowed just to get to their starting position for a bump, so unfortunately we didn’t even get the chance to bump them back. After they left the race course, we were giving all we had to pull away from Homerton, and hoped that they would get bumped. After a short scare of them gaining on us, we managed to leave them behind, and they crabbed as well, so Pembroke was able to catch them. After a short few meters of scrappy and happy rowing we got our heads back into the boat and finished the race with a steady 32ish rate, putting in all the effort that we could.
