Show your support for the Dark Blues

Oxford will be looking to continue its winning streak on the water against historic rivals Cambridge in this year's 162nd Cancer Research UK Boat Races on 27 March.

Last year all four Oxford rowing crews won their races against Cambridge on a momentous afternoon when the women, for the first time, raced over the same gruelling course as the men. If Oxford secure victory in 2016, they will edge tantalisingly closer to Cambridge's 81 wins - Oxford currently stands at 79.

Proof that the races are still a highlight on Oxonian calendars long after they leave the University, many of our alumni groups will be holding their own events to cheer on the Dark Blues.

From viewings of the races in the local pub to formal dinners, there are 25 events in 15 countries to choose from. If you haven't met your local group yet, this is a great opportunity.
