Oxford City Bumping Races

Saturday 21st April 2018
1800m upstream on the Isis in Oxford 
NON-CONTACT BUMPS for coxed fours! 
RACE 4 TIMES! 

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: bumpingraces@oxfordrowingclub.org.uk 

Note: 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.
