Boat Race Dinner

Celebrating the race with Cambridge

We were delighted to join our friends at the Cambridge Society of Ottawa at their annual Boat Race Dinner.

The first varsity Boat Race was rowed in 1829; it became an annual fixture between the two Universities in 1856, interrupted only by the First and Second World Wars.  The Women’s Boat Race was first rowed in 1927; it became an annual fixture in 1964.

This year, Oxford prevailed in the men’s race, and Cambridge in the women’s race.
