Do you have a favourite Boat Race? Which one and why?

My dad getting disqualified (Isis 1990) at the Bandstand which in our house we call the first finish line, after beating the Cambridge 1v three weeks earlier at the Head of the River. Or maybe Hugh Laurie (Cambridge) sinking in the Boat Race.

What would winning The Boat Race mean to you?

Getting past the bandstand means I can tease my dad and all his best mates forever (1990 Isis race disqualified at the bandstand).
It’s also been a life goal of mine and an incredibly special project I am aiming to be a part of.
