Well the Boat Race has once again come and gone, and once again Cambridge lost. It was an inevitability this year, as the Oxford team was very good.
It was still a very fun day. RS, GC (who I’d not seen for ages), his flatmate, FJ, and LS showed up, and we had a lot of fun in the Eight Bells in Putney. Luckily the weather was really good, and we got a fair few drinks in in the hours before the race itself begun (it’s wise to arrive several hours early as it gets very packed very quickly). We sneaked off to watch the start, before sprinting back to the pub to watch the rest on TV.
After the race was over, LS went home, and the rest of us crammed onto the overflowing tube to go to the West End for supper. We elected on a Taiwanese restaurant in Chinatown, which was really good, before grabbing one final drink in the Cambridge on Charing Cross Road.
All in all it was a great day, in spite of the loss! Ah well, there’s always next year!
