The battle of the Blues

Sunday 27th March saw Oxford and Cambridge battling it out on the tideway in what proved to be choppy conditions.

In the women’s race, OUWBC took the title in 21 minutes and 49 seconds by 24 lengths after CUWBC struggled to stay afloat on the turbulent Thames.

Meanwhile, in the men’s race CUBC took back the trophy from OUBC in 18 minutes and 38 seconds by 2 and a half lengths taking their total wins to 82.

To celebrate our involvement as Official Technical Kit Supplier to all crews, we held our own party here at the hub and even managed to have a BBQ on the balcony whilst the heavens opened and the rain fell – very heavily!

Joining us on the day were friends, family and Crewroom customers along with our competition winner – Eloise Heap – who enjoyed a prime position for the build up and start of the race.

Luckily the crews had the perfect kit to protect them from the elements. Let's hope Mother Nature will be a little kinder next year.
