CUCBC Committee Positions 2011-12

With the May Bumps fast approaching and the academic year almost over, we are starting to think about appointing next year’s CUCBC Executive Committee. There are four open positions, all of which are open to any member of the College boat clubs.

  • CUCBC Honorary Secretary
  • Coxes' Representative
  • Junior Treasurer
  • Events Secretary

Involvement with the CUCBC Committee is fun and rewarding and a good way of giving something back to College rowing in Cambridge, so if you are enthusiastic about college rowing and would like to get involved on the organisational side, please do consider applying for a position.While there are a number of defined jobs, responsibilities (particularly organising races) tend to be shared between committee members who will work together throughout the year.

If you wish to run for one of the above positions, please send a brief manifesto outlining your experience and what you will bring to the position to Dan Wilkins (dan [at], CUCBC Honorary Secretary, by Wednesday 8th June.

Umpiring Lent Bumps

Thanks for your willingness to help with umpiring Lent Bumps 2018. The Lent Bumps 2018 will take place Tuesday 27th February to Saturday 3rd March. Please fill out the questions below, indicating your availability.

Nearer the time you will be sent a rota based upon the times you have said you are free. There is also a free umpires dinner to thank you for your time.

We only ask that you have competed in bumps before (at least twice), so that everyone helping knows what to expect.

If you have any problems, or need to change when you are listed as available, please email conor[at] The division timetable is available here.

Early Morning Restrictions

From Monday 24th January until the end of the Lent Term, only first VIIIs will be permitted to boat each morning within the first 10 minutes after lighting down. All other crews may boat from 10 minutes after lighting down.

When warming up in the mornings (and any other times traffic density is high), please ensure you are rowing no less than half crew at half slide. Please keep moving on when it is safe to do so, so as not to cause a hold-up of traffic behind you. This will help congestion in the mornings and at busy times.

Rowers and coxes are reminded that there is to be no coaching from the bank and only essential coxing calls upstream of the Railway Bridge before 07:30. Inexperienced crews who are unable to make it to the Railway Bridge without coaching should not boat before 07:30.

Novice Coxes' Presentation

Slides from the novice coxes' presentation introducing coxing and covering important points about coxing in Cambridge as well as giving advice on developing as a cox are now available in the Coxes and Coaches section of the Handbook. All new coxes should be familiar with this material.

In addition, all coxes should be encouraged to join the CUCBC Coxes' mailing list to ensure they receive important announcements. Information/instructions related to the lists can be found at

Also available here are the slides and Novice Coaching Manual from the Lower Boats Captains' Course.
