*Please pass this message on to anyone in your club who may be interested in umpiring*

With not long to go before the Lent Bumps (1st-5th March), we're looking to find umpires for this year's races.

Umpiring is a really fun way to get involved in the Bumps - you get to see and be involved in the action from up close on the towpath, either cycling along with the crews or acting as a static umpire at key points on the course. In addition to this, you will get a free dinner, probably the week after Bumps and umpiring will reduce the number of marshals that your club needs to provide.

To help out, you don't need to have umpired before although we do ask that you have rowed or coxed in at least 2 sets of Bumps in the past. There will be a meeting for all umpires where we will explain everything and those that have not umpired before will be paired with a 'senior' during the races.

If you would like to help out, please sign up at


indicating which divisions you are available for (the times of the divisions are listed at 

You can both compete and umpire (although obviously don't sign up to umpire a division you're competing in!)

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
