The famous Boat Race between the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, the two biggest universities in the UK takes place on an irregular basis since 10 June 1829. But today in 1927, is the first Women’s Boat Race.

Originally the two female crews were not allowed on the river at the same time and so were judge on their time and style. It wouldn’t be until 1935 when the races became similar to the mens contest, racing over a 1/2 mile on the Cam or the Isis in Oxford.
