Cambridge University won both the Men’s Boat Race and the Men’s Reserve Race for the second consecutive year yesterday.

The Blue Boat held on to retain The 2019 Men’s Boat Race, after Oxford came from several lengths down at St Paul’s Boathouse to push their Light Blue opponents to just under a length’s verdict at the finishing line. Cambridge, led by former Women’s Head Coach Rob Baker, covered the famous Championship course in 16:57 to beat Oxford for a second year in a row. Full report here.
