Snow on towing path, ice in river almost too thick to row through. The races remarkable for accidents.
First day: Trinity were stopped by the bump ahead; Hertford rowed past.
Third day: Worcester were entangled in their bung line, and were caught.
Fourth day: Queen's stopped by an empty, drifting boat. Hertford offered to give up bump, but Queen's would not allow it.
Sixth day: Trinity close on Queen's, when stroke caught his oar in the bung of one of the earlier boats, and broke it, and jumped overboard; but Merton, coming up, made their seventh bump.
