Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race 2021

By Chris Dinsdale

April 4, 2021 - The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race returns for the 166th men’s event. For the first time since 1944, the gruelling University Boat Race will be held in Ely rather than on the River Thames in London -- moved due to the pandemic, the contest will begin where the wartime race finished.

International crews from England’s top two universities take to the River Great Ouse, Cambridgeshire, in a gruelling three-mile rowing race between Queen Adelaide and Littleport.

In the men’s race, Cambridge won the 2019 race by just one length, and lead the overall series with 84 victories to Oxford’s 80.

While in the women’s race, Cambridge are aiming for a fourth successive triumph, and lead the overall series with 44 victories to Oxford’s 30.
