London, 26 November The decision to relocate the event reflects the challenge of planning a high-profile amateur event around continuing COVID related restrictions as well as uncertainty regarding the safety and navigation of Hammersmith Bridge.
Following consultation with long-term partners in London, East Cambridge District Council, and the Environment Agency, we are delighted to have strong local support, enabling us to hold the world-famous races in Ely.
BRCL is now working with local authorities to ensure a safe event for the local community, crews, and coaches, as well as the volunteers and contractors helping to stage the races.
By Lottie Limb. The annual Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities will take place in Ely, Cambridgeshire next year it has been announced Rowers will battle it out on the Great Ouse at Ely , Cambridgeshire in April the organiser announced this morning November Follow our live blog below for more details about the Boat Race.
The pandemic and UK lockdown forced the cancellation of the Boat Races, but the subsequent closure of Hammersmith Bridge, in imminent danger of collapse, left organisers with a major headache.
One option was to move the course upriver to avoid the bridge, but that would have meant an unfair course, with no opportunity to boat from the usual facilities because of the risks of infection.

Oxford, partially disabled, were making effort after effort to hold their rapidly waning lead, while Cambridge, who, curiously enough, had settled together again, and were rowing almost as one man, were putting on a magnificent spurt at 40 strokes to the minute, with a view of catching their opponents before reaching the winning-post.
Thus struggling over the remaining portion of the course, the two eights raced past the flag alongside one another, and the gun fired amid a scene of excitement rarely equalled and never exceeded.
Cheers for one crew were succeeded by counter-cheers for the other, and it was impossible to tell what the result was until the Press boat backed down to the Judge and inquired the issue.
John Phelps, the waterman, who officiated, replied that the noses of the boats passed the post strictly level, and that the result was a dead heat.
Because of World War , the race was not held in — and — On January 12, , the Daily Telegraph announced that the annual race was cancelled due to men leaving for war, "for every available oarsman, either Fresher or Blue, has joined the colours.
In some of the existing Oxford blues attempted to oust president Ronnie Howard and coach Jumbo Edwards.
Following defeat in the previous year's race , Oxford's first in eleven years, American Chris Clark was determined to gain revenge: "Next year we're gonna kick ass Cambridge's ass.
Even if I have to go home and bring the whole US squad with me. British press . Disagreements over the training regime of Dan Topolski , the Oxford coach "He wanted us to spend more time training on land than water!
Seven years later, a film based on the book was released. The umpire, John Garrett, decided to restart the race from the eastern end of Chiswick Eyot.
Garrett judged the clash to be Oxford's fault and allowed the race to continue. Cambridge quickly took the lead and went on to win the race.
It was the first time since that a crew had won the boat race without an official recorded winning time.
Because of the circumstances, the post-race celebrations by the winning Cambridge crew were unusually muted and the planned award ceremony was cancelled.
The races are to be held on the Great Ouse at Ely in Cambridgeshire. In the race , run in extremely poor weather and high winds, both crews sank.
Oxford rowed into a significant early lead, but began taking on water, and made for the bank shortly after passing Hammersmith Bridge to empty the boat out: although they attempted to restart, the race was abandoned at this point because Cambridge had also sunk, while passing the Harrods Depository.
Cambridge also sank in and in , while Oxford did so in ,    and again in ; the race was re-rowed on the following Monday.
The Cambridge cox indicated that she wanted to continue to complete the course and was allowed to do so. From the first women's event in , the Women's Boat Race was run separately from the men's event until There was significant inequality between the two events.
The start and finish are marked by the University Boat Race Stones on the south bank. The clubs' presidents toss a coin the sovereign before the race for the right to choose which side of the river station they will row on: their decision is based on the day's weather conditions and how the various bends in the course might favour their crew's pace.
The north station ' Middlesex ' has the advantage of the first and last bends, and the south ' Surrey ' station the longer middle bend.
During the race the coxes compete for the fastest current, which lies at the deepest part of the river, frequently leading to clashes of blades and warnings from the umpire.
A crew that gets a lead of more than a boat's length can cut in front of their opponent, making it extremely difficult for the trailing crew to gain the lead.
For this reason the tactics of the race are generally to go fast early on, and few races have a change of the lead after halfway though this happened in , and The race is rowed upstream , but is timed to start on the incoming flood tide so that the crews are rowing with the fastest possible current.
The conditions are sometimes such that an international regatta would be cancelled, but the Boat Race has a tradition of proceeding even in potential sinking conditions see Sinkings above.
Here, shortly after the race, the Boat Race trophy is presented to the winning crew. It is traditional for the winning side to throw their cox into the Thames to celebrate their achievement.
Moved from the original festivities by the stone in Mortlake , these are therefore at the clubhouse by Grove Park, Chiswick, west of the bridge. Nonetheless the arms of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames , covering more than half of the Surrey bank, has two griffin supporters that hold oars, one light blue, one dark, in reference to the Boat Race, colours which are 'later tinctures' in English heraldry.
