DC Telecast: Boat Race on the Thames
The Dubliner Pub, Washington DC

April 6th 2014 sees the 160th Boat Race between crews from Cambridge and Oxford and to mark the occasion Cantab DC will be organizing an informal event at the Dubliner Pub located on 4 F Street NW nearest the Union Station Metro stop.

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! Pre-race coverage will also be broadcast and the race itself starts promptly at 1:00PM (EST), so please plan on arriving for the pre-race festivities, a Brunch and some light-hearted banter. We have a room reserved and the Society Board will set up a welcome table with a silent auction and some free appetizers. 

Origins of the Race: 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 81 victories to Oxford's 77, with one dead-heat in 1877.
