Cambridge 99 and Cantabrigian kept their headships of the CRA Town Bumps after a curtailed three days of racing on the River Cam last week.

The hot weather at the start of the week saw the first two days racing cancelled, and on the remaining three nights, there was no catching the lead crews in the men’s and women’s divisions.

Nines kept the headship of the men’s division one, with Cantabs staying in second place, while the main movers were City of Cambridge who went from sixth to third, bumping Rob Roy, Cantabs II and Nines II.

X-Press rowed over in seventh, while City II went up from 11th to eighth, with Cantabs III down one to ninth and Chesterton completing the top 10.

In the women’s top division, the first three crews rowed over, with Cantabs keeping the headship, City in second and Cantabs II staying in third.
