I've always cheered on Oxford...no idea why.

All others in my house cheer Cambridge because it's closer to where we live now? hey ho. lol.

Hoping it goes without a hitch this year ...

I am with you on that Muffy - always support Oxford for uni reasons but always puzzled why it is the same two teams in the final lol

I have always cheered Cambridge because as a child I lived in Cambridge Crescent, even though at that time we lived closer to Oxford. :-S

The first race took place in 1829 in Henley on Thames following a challenge between old school friends. Since the second race in 1836 the contest has taken place in London.
