The Boat Race Archive

It’s that time of year again – the notorious river feud between the world’s two most famous universities Oxford and Cambridge. We’ve slaved away behind the scenes for you in our archive and put together a comprehensive reel package so that you can watch the famous race through the years. It’s interesting to see the changing looks of the rowers over the decades, from old to young, broad to lean, and not to mention the everchanging kits from 1920s-style frumpy long scarves to the romantic white blouse-like attire of the glistening 70s. Take a look at the Boat Race archive area here.
