11th of April is Boat Race Day, and not just any year but the first for our Women’s Blue Boat to compete on the tideway, too. Beautiful Munich weather withstanding, almost 50 Alumni gathered to watch the race at the beautiful Café at the University, which kindly prioritized the race over German football and ensured live screening from the BBC. We were very happy to also have our friends from Cambridge with us and they took the heavy double light blue defeat with high spirits. A lot of Lycra, Blazers and College crests were on show and many members exchanged fond memories of early morning outings and bumps racing. We are very proud to see the Women’s race now being an equal part of the annual event and look forward to many more Oxford victories. Thanks to everyone for making this such a memorable and fun day, and we are very excited for our next Oxford Munich Society event: the Alpine Excursion at the end of May.
