Boat Race–2017

When: Sunday, 2 April 2017, 4:00pm – 8:00pm

Where: Bath Function Rooms, Green Park Station, Bath BA1 1JB (map)

Dress Code: Casual

On Sunday 2 April, the OUSoc Bristol & Bath organised a viewing event for the 163rd Oxford–Cambridge Boat Race and the 72nd Women's Boat Race. The crowd gathered at the Bath Function Rooms to watch the race and cheer on the rowers.

A number of alumni attended the event. Many of them rowed themselves in the past, including Peter Tomlinson of Brasenose College (on the photo). We cheered for the dark blue women's team after their less than perfect start. We were filled with excitement when Oxford men's team showed the other place who is the best.
