Page produced 27 March 2005. I hope my arithmetic is correct; if not, please let me know.
Record times here are unofficial (& disagree with those given in the
Boat Race official programme & with those in the British Rowing Almanack,
but you can see whether you agree with their arithmetic or mine).
The Almanack gives 2:46.5 for Oxford 2002 from Mile to Hammersmith, but this was 3:38 to 6:23.5
It gives 2:46 for Oxford 1984 from Barnes Bridge to the Finish (as does the programme), but this was 13:57 to 16:45.
The programme gives 9:57 for Cambridge 1998 from the Mile Post to Barnes Bridge, but this was 3:33 to 13:32.
It gives 9:56 for Cambridge 1998 from Hammersmith Bridge to the Finish, but this was 6:20 to 16:19.
It also gives Cambridge 1998 as sharing the time of 3:35 from Chiswick Steps to Barnes Bridge, but this was 9:56 to 13:32.
