Pembroke College Boat Club
is the rowing
club for members of Pembroke College, Cambridge
. Over the last century, crews from Pembroke have held the headship of the men's Lent Bumps
on four occasions, and the headship of the men's May Bumps
ten times. The men's 1st VIII spent their entire history in the 1st division of both events, apart from poor performances in the Lent Bumps 2000
and the May Bumps 2003
, and the crew is usually found in the top half of the division. The women's 1st VIII first raced in 1985, and have not yet taken the headship of the Lent Bumps
, but took the headship of the May Bumps
in 1997, 1998, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
May Bumps 2010 saw the PCBC women's first VIII retain headship for the third year in a row. The PCBC men's first VIII bumped up three places to 2nd on the River.
Below are the results of the last decade of bumps races
. Results given are for the 1st VIII and Women's 1st VIII only.
