Event Details

A fantastic Cambridge event, which is off the beaten track from the centre.

Many new students signed up to join their college rowing crew when they arrived in the autumn and this is their first opportunity to show what they have and have not learnt since then.

Usually you will find some pretty amazing mistakes made on the river. Fingers crossed for no accidents.

The Lent Bumps 2022 will take place from Tuesday 1st to Saturday 5th March 2022 along the lower river. The back of the bumps is somewhere near the A14 fly over and 31 different boats line up in front of them spaced 1.5 lengths in front of the one behind.

A timing cannon signifies the race is about to start and coaches push the boats out into the river ready for the starting cannon to sound. Whistles blow as coaches signal the distance between their crew and the target boat ahead.

Once a bump is made the crew that makes the bump has the right to foliage from the willow tree and the defeated team hang their heads.
