Later this month will not only see the Easter bunny delivering chocolate eggs on Sunday 27th March but also Oxford’s and Cambridge’s finest battling it out on the tideway in The Cancer Research Boat Races.
First raced in 1829 and 1927 respectively, Boat Races are amongst the oldest sporting events in the world. March 2016 will see the running of the 162nd Boat Race and 71st Women's Boat Race, both now taking place on the Championship Course.
Watched by thousands along the banks of the Tideway, between Putney and Mortlake in London, and by millions more on TV around the world, the Boat Races are a unique sporting event. As Official Technical Kit Supplier to the event, we’ll be proudly cheering on the crews from our balcony here on Putney embankment.
To celebrate the prestigious event, we’ve launched a range of official merchandise so now you can show your support to your favourite Blue!
OUBC Bodyshell £45
We’ve designed this as a form-fitting garment – a contoured second skin – making this a perfect base layer for our colder months. The fabric uses our bamboo charcoal technology to keep you warm and smelling fresher for longer whilst the stretch nylon shell and raglan sleeves gives you ultimate maneuverability. We've even included a nifty triangular stretch panel in the neck to make sure you can pop it over your head nice and easily.
CUBC Softshell Gilet £69
This three-layer softshell gilet is at home on the windy moors as it is when you need protection from the dullish British conditions in and around town. We’ve lovingly called this the Tea & Cake Gilet because, with a waterproof shell and fleece liner, it’s a great layer for post training whilst you warm yourself up with a mug of rosy and a slice of sponge.
OUWBC Softshell Jacket (Women’s) £99
This is an all-rounder of a jacket, great for throwing on post training. The three-layer softshell will keep you warm and dry in the elements and internal wrist sleeves with thumb loops are a nice finishing touch. Reflective branding makes this product perfectly practical for outdoor adventures.
CUWBC No Fuss Beanie £19
There really is no fuss. Simply put, it's a really comfortable beanie using a natural feel, stretch fabric which will keep you warm!
