Boat Race – Cambridge 79, Oxford 73

For the 2nd time in my Cambridge history, I headed down to the Thames with friends to watch the boat race. The last time was in 1998, when Cambridge thrashed Oxford and set a course record. This time, Cambridge were favourites again after a recent run of losses, and started the race behind. The calm coxing of Rebecca Dowbiggin and consistent pressure from the Cambridge eight brought them into the lead soon into the race, and they came through victorious.

These photos were taken from Chiswick Bridge, just after the finish line.
