Page produced (belatedly) 6 Aug 09, & updated 2 Apr 10. I hope my arithmetic is correct; if not, please let me know.
Record times here are unofficial (& disagree with those previously given
in previous years in the Boat Race official programme & in the British
Rowing Almanack, but you can see whether you agree with their arithmetic
The Almanack gives 2:46.5 for Oxford 2002 from the Mile Post to Hammersmith Bridge, but this was 3:38 to 6:23.5
It gives 2:46 for Oxford 1984 from Barnes Bridge to the Finish (as did the programme), but this was 13:57 to 16:45.
The Almanack shows Chiswick Steps to Barnes Bridge as being Cambridge's 1996 time of 3:35, but Oxford in 2005 did 3:34 (10:17 to 13:51).
The programme gave 9:57 for Cambridge 1998 from the Mile Post to Barnes Bridge, but this was 3:33 to 13:32.
It gave 9:56 for Cambridge 1998 from Hammersmith Bridge to the Finish, but this was 6:20 to 16:19.
