Oxford Eights 2019: 22nd – 26th May 2019

Oxford University’s annual summer regatta…  Pimms, partying and pile-ups at a 200-year old inter-collegiate tradition.

Like most things in Oxford, rowing has been around for a long time. Oxford Colleges have been facing off on their stretch of the Thames, the Isis, since 1815, with a distinctive style of bumps racing, known in summer as Summer Eights that has lasted the ages. The 2019 event, which is held over four days starting on Wednesday, May 22, involves 171 boats and around 1,500 participants.
