May Bumps Getting-On Race

Where there are more crews entering the Bumps than there are places on the River, the lowest crews must compete for places in the Getting-On Race. Crews are removed from the lowest division such that there is one place available in the Bumps for every two crews competing in the Getting-On Race (up to a maximum of 17 places). Crews are timed from the upstream side of the A14 Road Bridge to the upstream side of the Railway Bridge and the fastest will qualify for places in the Bumps.

There will be two divisions of racing, one for men's crews one for women's. The women will race first. Women's crews should marshal between the motorway bridge and Baitsbite lock by 1750 pulled in facing upstream in race order. Racing will start at 1800. Men's crews should marshal on Stourbridge Common by 1830, in race order with the first racing crew furthest downstream. Once the first division has finished racing, crews will push off in order, and row down to the lock where they should spin, one at a time, and then paddle back upstream towards the start. Racing will begin at 1900.
