Spectating Bumps

Bumps is the perfect opportunity for a picnic out on the meadows next to the river, and we’d love your support for your college, family and friends.


Look out for the Pembroke crews from their blades  


Advertised times are when the start ‘gun’ goes off – so be sure to be in place with plenty of time!

On Saturday the times are all moved forward 2 hours.

Getting There

It’s recommended to use Google maps to navigate to the river – then try to find the landmarks below. Here’s a great guide from FaT boat club on how to get to the river: http://www.firstandthird.org/frames/rowing/bumpscourse.shtml
We recommend watching from Grassy Corner, the Plough pub or on Plough reach. It takes about about 45-60 minutes to walk from Pembroke College, less by bike. 


For the final day of racing on Saturday 16th June 2018, PCBC support will once again be concentrated at our Marquee on the Meadow side of the Long Reach. It’s just past the Railings on the map above.

It would be excellent to see as many Alumni and current students there as possible!

The Club will be laying on nibbles and drinks…

We’ll be there from 11am until the final race at 5:45pm.
