BBC Viewing: Boat Race on the Thames
  The Boat Race  
The Dubliner

April 7th 2012 sees the 158th Boat Race between crews from Cambridge and Oxford and to mark the occasion Cantab DC will be organizing an event at the Dubliner for area alumni (both Oxford and Cambridge) to watch the contest. The race starts at 9:15AM (EST) so please plan on arriving by 8:45.

First raced in 1829 The Boat Race is one of the oldest sporting events in the world, originally taking place in Henley on Thames following a challenge between old school friends. Since the second race in 1836 the contest has taken place in London and is watched by thousands along the banks of The Tideway, between Putney and Mortlake and by millions more on TV around the world. Cambridge leads the series with 80 victories to Oxford's 76, with one dead-heat in 1877.

Come support the Light Blue as they compete against Oxford. With two very strong squads of athletes, expect to see another great race this year. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Dubliner bright and early on the 7th!
