May Bumps 2017 – Day 4 HHLCBC Race Report

W3 kicked off the final day with a strong showing against Christ’s W3, catching them early out of the gate and handing them spoons! A wild ride this week saw them finish up 3 spots.

M2 was up next, looking to take Caius M3’s blades away from them. By the time they got to Grassy, it was an eerily similar situation to Lents with boats pulled in around the corner and a crew jackknifed on the far side. However, M2 maneuvered deftly through closely followed by Catz, walking away after Catz crashed out going for the Bump (0+).

W2 finished their campaign in style. Christ’s was in the Hucy crosshairs again, catching their W2 just past the Motorway Bridge and in full view of the cheering Hucy college party on the bank. They superbladed to glory, ending with an incredible +6!

W1 came out determined as always, chasing down Selwyn W1, handing out yet another set of spoons for the club, and moving ever closer to the coveted Mays 1st division with a +2 finish!

M1 was primed to claw their way back on Saturday, in spite of yet another substitution. While looking cleaner off the start than they had all week, Eddies M1’s ‘go for broke’ mentality ultimately won the day, emptying everything they had into a 400m sprint, catching our guys before first post (-3).

That’s all for this year’s May Bumps!! A big shoutout to all those who competed, and a fond farewell to those who had their last race as a Hucian yesterday; your club is proud and thankful for all you’ve done!!
