Default Putney Boat Race 2021 changes to Great Ouse due to Covid

3PM Sunday BBC1HD


Boat Race 2021 floats to Great Ouse for unique,
unpredictable edition

Since 1845 the Boat Race has been staged
between Putney and Mortlake
but this year finds itself in rural Cambridgeshire



[Because of the pandemic and the closure
of Hammersmith Bridge,
both menís and womenís races have
decamped nearly 90 miles to
the Great Ouse in rural Cambridgeshire,
where they will be run on a shorter
and straighter three-mile course between
Ely and Littleport.
And instead of being accompanied
by the shouts and cries of 250,000 fans
scrunched along the Thames,
all the Oxford and Cambridge crews
will hear will be the splash of oar
on water as the event is closed to the public.
Anyone trying to sneak in to watch
faces a £200 fine.
