Oxford City Bumping Races

The Oxford City Bumping Races (April) - Also known as the Town Bumps, this event is held over the same course as the Oxford University bumps races, but is raced in coxed fours instead of eights. 

The term bump refers to the way a faster boat catches a slower boat - this used to be the result of two boats physically coming into contact with each other, but these days it is simply an overlap. We describe our event as 'non-contact'
