Cambridge win The Boat Race

One of the spring traditions is the University Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities

Despite hardly any of us ever having known anyone that has been to one of these piles, the country is polarised. Light blue or Dark blue!

Today has been a strange one, firstly a lunatic in the water that has caused a restart.

Then on the restart, the Oxford boat appeared to track to the left and crunch into the Cambridge boat and an oar went phut!

The umpire called it to continue and Cambridge won by a long distance.

One sad thing for me was the comments from one of the BBC commentators, very unsporting to suggest that Oxford should have stopped to force a "no result". Disgraceful.

Sportsmanship prevailed and Oxford rowed on.
