Well, that was fun! I think we hold the record for being bumped in the shortest ever possible time, though it was down to an accident rather than us being totally incompetent.
We weren't pushed out straight, and then when the bank party tried to get 2 to tap it, she cleverly backed it instead (ok, maybe a little bit of incompetence). So essentially we were totally wonky when the gun went, half the crew were still trying to manoeuvre and therefore missed the first stroke, and we rowed very gracefully into a bush, while St Edmunds rowed straight past us, not really realising what had gone on! Ah well. I hope we get to row a little bit further tomorrow.
