The official Blue Boat announcement for the 166th Men's Boat Race and the 75th Women's Boat Race will be hosted by Robert Gillespie, Chair of the Boat Race Company.  You will hear from the chief coaches and athletes on team preparation during lockdown, their return to the water and their thoughts on racing in Ely this year.

With several former Blues and notable members of each team, this year looks set to bring two exciting races in the world’s oldest and most famous amateur sporting events.
For the first time in history both Blue Boat Races will be umpired by women.  Sarah Winckless MBE OLY will umpire the Men’s Race and Judith Packer the Women’s Boat Race.  Both umpires were due to officiate at the cancelled 2020 race and were re-appointed by the Umpires Panel when it was announced that the 2021 Race was to be moved to the Great Ouse, Cambridgeshire.

The Men’s Boat Race was first raced on 10 June 1829 in Henley on Thames, the Women’s Boat Race on 15 March 1927 in Oxford.  Since 2015, The Men’s and Women’s Boat Races have taken place on the same day on The Championship Course. Both Men’s and Women’s races have moved locations a number of times, but the women’s race has never been held in Ely. The Men’s Boat Race has previously been raced in Ely, in 1944, when it was not possible to stage the race in London.

We are proud to partner with Gemini, PlayerLayer, Chapel Down, and Wainwright Golden Beer.

The Gemini Boat Race 2021 will be a closed event, with no access to spectators to ensure the race can go ahead in a COVID-secure way.
