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.
A few minutes earlier, Goldie had won the Reserve Race having been pushed all of the way by Isis, the final verdict just 3 seconds between the two crews. A full race report to follow.
It was a Light Blue day on the Tideway with Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club also winning both of their Boat Races, repeating the Clean Sweep of openweight Boat Races from 2018.
