The 2016 Women's Boat Race

for the second time on the tideway

River Thames between Putney and Mortlake

The 2016 Women’s Boat Race has been a most dramatic event! On a day with very mixed weather, Oxford and Cambridge had a tight race in glorious Easter sunshine until the Hammersmith Bend. Then, the wind and the waves turned the sunny afternoon into a drama, with both boats sometimes completely hidden by spray, and the Cambridge boat almost sinking. But the Cambridge ladies kept calm and carried on until the finish line.

For more details, see the official Race Report by the Boat Race Company below. A crew list and captions for all the photos will follow soon.
