Oxford And Cambridge To Race In Front Of Split Waterfront

Rowing teams from English universities Oxford and Cambridge are set to take on rowers from the Split Rowing Club in Croatia in front of the famous waterfront in the Dalmatian city of Split next month.

The legends from Oxford and Cambrige, whose universities have famously raced against each other annually on the River Thames in the UK since the mid 1800’s, will race in front of the Split waterfront on 5 May against their Croatian counterparts.

The winners of this year’s famous Oxford-Cambridge race this year Oxford, will bring their entire winning eight to race. Split in Croatia provides Cambridge with a chance to take revenge on Oxford for their loss.

“We are looking forward to the Split Regatta and we are very thankful to the organisers who were great hosts in the last few years, it is also an opportunity to race against our biggest rivals,” said Cambridge captain George Nash.

The race will be part fo the 13th International Rowing Regatta St. Dominus which is held in Split from 4-5 May. On the 5th of May the University Eights race will take place in Spinut, followed by the legends race a day later.
