ABSTRACT
OXFORD beat Cambridge by a length and a half to win the 159th Boat Race. The Dark Blues, who won the toss and opted for the Surrey station, made a strong start and finally broke a spirited Cambridge effort just as the river turned towards the finish at Barnes Bridge. Last year, Oxford lost one of the most dramatic Boat Races in history but there were no swimming protesters or broken oars yesterday.
