Bristol Rowing Club, BS6 1

Join us for the oldest event within the Varsity Series - the Varsity Boat Race

The Varsity Boat Race is held in the most iconic part of the city, with the SS Great Britain, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Princes St Swing Bridge and the Harbourside industrial cranes serving as the picture-perfect backdrop.

The day promises to deliver a series of scintillating, edge of your seat races, starting at Brunel’s Lock and finishing near the SS Great Britain, so be prepared for the finest of margins on the finish line.

The programme will include a series of sprint races between UWEBC and UBBC, including Men’s and Women’s Alumni races, as well as a Dragon Boat Race.

This year will also see the return of 'Best of the West', where local clubs and regional universities compete for the title. Expect Pimms, live acoustic music, local food, great rowing, and commentary throughout the event, in a day that celebrates the best that University sport has to offer in a city that loves to celebrate two universities, one city.
