We may have the best Oxford in town, however as we approach the 2022 Oxford vs. Cambridge boat race this Sunday, we are firmly backing our very own Alder Man Tom George who is rowing for Cambridge. Putting our bias aside for a moment, we have compiled a comprehensive guide on what to wear, where to watch the event and great sustainable vendors for you to enjoy a meal or drink.
As the event takes place in West London, from Putney to Mortlake, we suggest heading up early to ensure you get the best spot on the Thames. The best viewing spots this year are Putney Bridge, Putney Embankment, the Pier House, Chiswick Pier and Thames Reach. The usual spectator hotspot, Hammersmith Bridge is unfortunately closed this year due to safety issues so plan ahead to make it to your favourite spot. Alternatively, you can view it from the comfort of your home or with friends and family. The commentary will commence one hour before the women's races, which start at 2:23pm.
