  • Short Summary

    Rowers compete for the title of Head of the River in annual race in Cambridge.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cambridge. For the Headship of the River. Encouraged by yells of the excited supporters, each college strives desperately to record a 'bump' in the 'May's' - & there were 16 in the first days racing!"

    Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.

    Rowers compete against each other to the Headship of the River as they row past large crowds lining the banks.

    Good shots of some of the boats touching. This is the 'bump' referred to in the title. The boat that is caught by the one behind has to retire. A boat goes by flying a flag, I think they are the winner.

    Sound Track Missing. This film has been transferred at the wrong speed and will need to be slowed down.
