Be there to support the Light Blues against their Oxford rivals in the 164th Men's Boat Race and 73rd Women's Boat Race.

Enjoy the afternoon with other alumni and rowing enthusiasts aboard the PS Elizabethan, moored in prime position at the start of the championship course at Putney Pier. Whatever the weather, see the crews warm up and enjoy refreshments from the comfort of an elegant replica paddle steamer.

With a special guest speaker, a glass of prosecco on arrival and an afternoon tea buffet with Pimm's, a ticket would make the perfect gift for friends or family or for any rowing enthusiast.

Once the crews are out of sight, watch the Races unfold on screen from the saloon in the company of your fellow Light Blues.
