This is a unique opportunity to witness a very accomplished College VIII in action and we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

St Andrew's rowing team is boating from North Eastern University Boat House (Henderson Boathouse) which is past the FINISH LINE on the map.
Unfortunately you cannot see the racing from this venue.
The most popular place to watch from is Weeks Footbridge or Anderson Bridge.
From these bridges you can see both directions, ie boats coming towards and then passing.
They are also both in Cambridge and close to Harvard Square Tube station which is great for transport.
The College team will not be racing or practising on Saturday, the river is closed for racing, so they will be observing.
