Oxford City Bumping Races
Saturday 21st April 2018
1800m upstream on the Isis in Oxford
NON-CONTACT BUMPS for coxed fours!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: City Bumps 2017 Cancelled
For a variety of reasons, we had a very low number of entries for Oxford City Bumps this year and so have decided to cancel the event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the Events Committee considered all the options and were concerned that the racing would not be high quality or competitive and we didn't want participants to have a bad experience. We will make sure next year's City Bumps is bigger and better!
David Reid, Regatta Secretary
RACING for Senior and Junior, Open and Women's crews in coxed fours, will be in divisions with 4 races per division at 2-hourly intervals. Each team shall consist of 4 rowers, a cox, a
poleman and a judge equipped with a bicycle. Men and women will race in separate divisions, with starting order drawn taking into account last year’s finish order. The aim is to finish as high in the
order as possible at the end of the day, and so secure a better starting position next year. Doubling up or sharing of equipment or coxes is not permitted.
MEDALS will be awarded to the crews at the head of the Open and Women’s first divisions at the end of the day's racing. Members of crews that bump in each cycle of races without being bumped
will each be awarded a mini blade trophy.
ENTRIES must be submitted using the British Rowing entry form linked below and accompanied by payment of £55 per crew (BACS payment details are included on the entry form) and emailed to: email@example.com
Places are strictly limited, and precedence will be given to complete applications in the order received.
Please provide an honest assessment of the crews ability with your entry as this will assist creating the start order. Crews who misrepresent their ability risk not being awarded blades.
Note: This is not a qualifying event. All club rowers must provide a British Rowing number. For insurance purposes, College rowers must either obtain a British Rowing license or provide evidence of racing insurance.
