Men's 2nd VIII Lents 2016-17 - Lent Bumps Day 3

Event: 
Lent Bumps
Day of racing: 
Day 3
Bumps Result: 
Got bumped
Crew bumped/bumped by: 
Emmanuel M2

We started the race quite optimistically, thinking we had a good chance of bumping Sidney Sussex M1 after they got bumped relatively quickly on the first day. We had a solid start and pushed away from Pembroke M2.
Meanwhile we were steadily gaining on Sidney, getting to half a length. They were not letting them being defeated easily though and kept a steady pace.
By now, Pembroke had regained speed and were coming ever closer. We tried a few pushes, but it was not of much help. Soon there was overlap and after some blade contact our cox conceded.
