Oxford and Cambridge rowing teams, whose universities have famously raced against each other annually on the River Thames in the UK since the mid-1800’s, will once again race in front of the Split waterfront.

The famous race crews will be taking part in the 16th International Regatta “Sv. Duje” (St. Dominus), in Split on 6-7 May 2017.
