Prime spots to watch the Oxford vs Cambridge boat race from on 7th April

Postby Community Editor » Tue Apr 02, 2019 12:04 pm

If you are planning to watch the annual rowing race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities, then check out these prime viewing spots from The Resident. https://www.theresident.co.uk/london-cu ... boat-race/

The men’s boat race was first raced in 1829, and the women’s in 1927 respectively, making it one of the oldest sporting events in the world. This year, ex-Olympic rower James Cracknell, who is studying for a postgraduate degree in Human Evolution at Cambridge University, will be rowing with the Cambridge team, adding a little celebrity glamour to proceedings.

The race starts from Putney Pier, between The Star & Garter pub and Thai Square, and finishes at Chiswick Bridge, just past The Ship in Mortlake. 

There are also two bank-side fan parks for eager spectators: one at Bishop's Park in Fulham (the beginning of the race), and one at Furnivall Gardens in Hammersmith (the half way mark). Both open at 12 noon and have a big screen, bars and street food. The latter is known as course’s liveliest location.

The races start at 2.13pm (Women’s) and 3.10pm (Men’s). Find the full timetable for the day at theboatrace.org and see the course map below:

Since it is written in French on one side of the box, does that mean the French have a finger in this?
