On Saturday April 11, 2015, thousands gathered to watch the 161st annual Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race; it was a beautiful, sunny day, and Oxford came out victorious.

The winners finished the race in 17 minutes and 34 seconds, beating Cambridge by 19 seconds.

The race also held historic significance, being the first event to include the Newton women's race on the same day.

And if you can't wait for the next instalment of aquatic excitement, then save the date for 2016's Boat Race: Sunday March 27, 2016 - Easter Sunday of this year.

Put the date in your diary and don't miss the sporting event of the year!
