Well that was an exciting first day! All three Eddies crews bumped up, giving us the lead in the Pegasus table!
First up was M2. After just 20 strokes St Catharine’s M3 had steered into the bank and our M2 sailed comfortably past. Next up today will be Corpus Christi M2 who overbumped yesterday. This might be a tough one today!
Next was our W1 chasing Fitzwilliam W2. After executing a fast and powerful start they began to move into Fitz before the start sequence had even finished. Shortly after Fitz caught a crab Eddies just ate up the remaining water, bumping before completing First Post Corner. Another easy bump. Next up is Pembroke III who rowed over yesterday.
Last but not least was M1. Looking strong and together the boat sailed along well off the start at a rating of 42! Homerton M1 also had a great start but Eddie’s held onto them well and took some space. It took a while, but the first whistle came at the Gut. Once the whistles started Steady Eddies slowly gained ground, but Homerton gave a few excellent pushes. Alas, after being so close for so long, Eddies ground them down on the Reach. A good fight fought by both crews and a very exciting end to a fantastic first day of Bumps! Next up is Robinson M1 today, another tough challenge, but Eddies are hungry…
Watch this space for more exciting bumps news!
