The annual boat race between the teams of Oxford and Cambridge Universities is held on the River Thames in London. It is a major social event with all the vantage points along the river booked well in advance. The teams train for a year and virtually give up their academic studies for the period. In the UK anyone who has rowed or coxed in the Boat Race is virtually guaranteed a job for life because of the prestige it brings. It is always covered on television. This year was on a Sunday due to the tide but it is more often on a Saturday.
