A majestic history
Cambridge challenged Oxford to the first boat race in 1829. First raced at Henley-on-Thames, with the exception of war time years, it has been raced annually on the London tideway since 1856. Our commitment to developing technical skill, excellent fitness, and high morale are a testament to the club’s 187-year old goal to beat Oxford. Cambridge currently lead Oxford with 82 to 79 wins.
