Last year's Finish Order (kindly provided by Anu) is available here: http://eodg.atm.ox.ac.uk/user/dudhia/rowing/torpids/t19fin.pdf

The captains have voted that the event be run as 'Pseudo-Torpids' and that this year's results, aside from penalty bumps, should not apply, and the start order for the next Torpids to take place after 2020 will be based on the finish order of 2019, with any penalty bumps awarded in 2020 applied. See minutes of HT20 5th Week Captains' Meeting for details.
