Clare Balding presents live coverage of one of the oldest and most prestigious sporting events on the British calendar.

The boat race pits the rowing crews of Oxford and Cambridge universities against each other on the waters of the River Thames.
The event begins with the women’s race, which started in 1927 and moved to the four-mile Championship Course four years ago, at 2.13pm, followed by the men’s race an hour later.

In 2018, Cambridge secured a second successive victory in the women’s event, before their male counterparts triumphed for an 83rd time.
