Every year, 17 million people tune into BBC One for the Oxford vs Cambridge Men's Boat Race, but what of the Women's Boat Race?
Last year, for the very first time in the history of the race, Cam FM, provided live coverage of the race, broadcasting commentary from ex-Olympian Sarah Winckless. This year, we return as a broadcast media partner of the race, before its historic move to the tideway in 2015.
We will be bringing you ALL the action from the Henley Boat Races, including the Women's Boat Race, the reserves race, and both the Men's and Women's lightweight races.
All the races are happening on Sunday 30th March and will be broadcast through the Henley Boat Races website (www.henleyboatraces.com), this website (www.camfm.co.uk), and on FM to Cambridge city.
A brief history of the Women?s Boat Race (available at www.theboatrace.org/women/history), documents the hostility the women?s crews have traditionally faced from their male counterparts, including male rowers at one point describing women?s rowing as a 'physiological impossibility'.
Cam FM are extremely proud to be supporting the women's races, at a particularly historic juncture for the sport.
