This morning the Boat Race Company Limited (BRCL) announced that The Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge will be held on the Great Ouse at Ely in April 2021. The event will see the 166th Men’s and the 75th Women’s boat races.
Friday brought the ever-eventful press conference, where hungry journalists try and extract as much information from the coach, president and cox of each boat club as possible. Not just an official affair, it allows for some humanisation of the athletes and teams, and a welcome break from training for the athletes. The press conference consists of five 15-minute slots to house OUWBC, CUWBC, CUBC, OUBC and the umpires.
