At yesterday’s anniversary celebrations in Oxford, where Brasenose College Boat Club and Jesus College Boat Club organised a well-attended get-together to celebrate that it was 200 years ago the two boat clubs first met for a Head of the River Race, which William O’Chee and Christopher Seward wrote about on HTBS yesterday, the two clubs rowed a celebratory race. The crews raced each other in two replicas of old-fashioned cutters. Rowing historian Chrisopher Dodd, of the River & Rowing Museum, was there to take some photographs.
