Over 400 crews race against the clock from Mortlake to Putney. Competitors range from Olympians to schoolboys and "Sunday morning gentlemen" crews, from all across the country, and indeed from other countries. Although the race is over the same four and a bit miles of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, it's rowed in the opposite direction: and it's by far the better spectacle, especially once the colourful traffic jams build up of crews waiting to come ashore and load up boats on to trailers or to start the long row home to their own boathouses.
