DC Telecast: Boat Race on the Thames

Sunday, April 2 sees the 163rd Boat Race between crews from Cambridge and Oxford and to mark the occasion Cantab DC will be organizing an informal event. We will meet at James Hoban's Pub in Dupont Circle.

Come support the Light Blue as they compete against Oxford. The races start at 11:30 AM. Grab some food and join in some light-hearted banter. 

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.
