Many thanks to those of you who have already signed up to umpire the Mays,
though we are still looking for a few more people to make sure the week's
racing runs smoothly, particularly for the higher divisions, M2/W1/M1 on
Friday and Saturday (though help at other times will be appreciated too!)


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 in May
Week, 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 http://www.cucbc.org/mays/times).


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.
