Cambridge--Oxford Boat Race 2007...and the winner is...

the weather was ideal, the water clear and smooth. Oxford was painted as the underdogs, though it has been at least years since Cambridge has one.

and the winner is... CAMBRIDGE

It was a close race, neck and neck at many points. Oxford pulled ahead a bit at Hammersmith, but Cambridge pulled ahead at Chiswick. My personal highlight was point at the hammersmith bridge where it was nearly blade to blade, with oxford getting the upperlead and popping the Cambridge blades out of the water. Two minutes to go, Oxford put on the power( 40 strokes per min) but it was not hard enough. A great race!
