London: The Boat Race, 2014

Hello! Following on swiftly from one of the world’s oldest horse races, came one of the oldest rowing races – the battle on the Thames between the crews of Oxford and Cambridge Universities. It is an international event these days and its 160th running attracted a huge audience, not only on TV but every square-inch of land on the riverbanks and bridges lining the route. People must have glimpsed the boats for a few seconds as they went by. The skies were grey, the river choppy and for Cambridge fans, a slip in the water barely five minutes into the race sealed their team’s fate. Oxford took advantage and streamed home to victory. Here a my drawings:
