The Henley Boat Races sponsored by Newton, are a series of private matches between representative crews from Oxford and Cambridge universities, and take place each Spring over the Henley Reach on the River Thames - the venue for Henley Royal Regatta. This year the event will include the Women's Reserve Race (Osiris vs Blondie), along with the Men's and Women's lightweight races.
As well as the university races, there are intercollegiate races offering a chance for the best men's and women's college crews from Oxford and Cambridge to race each other over part of the Henley course. This year, the men's first eight from Downing College, Cambridge defeated Oriel College, Oxford by half a length, while Wadham, Oxford's women beat Trinity College, Cambridge by two and a half lengths.
