The Boat Race.
March 15, 1927. The first women’s rowing competition ("The Boat Race") between Cambridge and Oxford.
Large and hostile crowds have formed along the towpath, mostly men who are unhappy that the women are rowing.
Prohibited from being on the water at the same time, it is not a side-by-side-contest. The two teams will be judged on style and form.
The judges muck about with the scores for a bit. It’s nearly called as a draw, but eventually, judges give the win to Oxford with a 15-second advantage over Cambridge.
It will be 1964 before the women’s Boat Race becomes a yearly event.
