BR 2013 On a cold and rather blustery day at Dorney lake (moved from Henley on Thames due to the weather) the 2013 blue boat, stroked by Will Kenyon, got off to a good start. Unfortunately the crew didn't manage to find a good rhythm into the wind and Oxford's lower rating gave them a 3/4L advantage by the 500m mark. CULRC then pushed on through the middle of the race to hold the dark blues in check, but coming into the last 500m OULRC broke clear to take the win by 1 2/3L.
