Notes

  • Notes from Sherwood
  • From the main text of Sherwood (p41)
    A quaint accident befell Brasenose, which is thus described in the Oxford Herald: 'On Wednesday, May 19, Brasenose met with an unfortunate and unlooked-for accident. On passing the Cherwell they were some considerable distance ahead of Christ Church, and were rowing beautifully towards home, when, just as the head of the boat was passing the red flag, one of the crew caught a 'crab,' and in endeavouring to recover himself, was thrown completely out of the boat into the river, and as the boat was thrown on its side shipped a considerable quantity of water. The seven oars had not the least chance to pull the boat past the flag, as all the oars on the bow side were in the air, and stroke side deep in the water'. In consequence of this accident Christ Church bumped them on the post.
