The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in London started as a challenge between two student friends, Charles Merivale at Cambridge University and Charles Wordsworth (Poet William Wordsworth nephew) who was at Oxford University.

It was Cambridge that first challenged Oxford on 13th March 1829, and to this day each year the loser of the previous year's boat race challenges their rivals to a rematch.

These days The BNY Mellon Boat Race in London becomes an international sporting event, with millions of people watching on TV worldwide. Whilst on the banks of the Thames from Putney to Mortlake, some 250,000 spectators come along to cheer on their favourite team.

Last year Oxford won The BNY Mellon Boat Race in London, making the current score as 76 wins to Oxford versus 80 wins to Cambridge.

On Sunday 31st March 2013 at 4:30pm, the 159th Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in London will take place.
