The Mission: Defeat Oxford and Win the BNY Mellon Boat Race
Cambridge challenged Oxford to the first boat race in 1829. First raced at Henley-on-Thames and, with the exception of war time years, it has been raced annually on the London tideway since 1856. Our commitment to technical skill, dominating fitness, and high morale give every Cambridge athlete the tools needed to achieve greatness through victory. Cambridge currently lead Oxford with 81 to 78 wins.
