My second date with my to-be-wife we went to the boat race. No idea why. I also wore a Motty style sheepskin coat. This was 2010. I am not of the ‘Minder’, ‘Sweeney’ er class nor the braying young - some very attractive but loud Camillas and Persephones there - upper middle classes but I - must admit - looked an absolute t1t.

Am lucky she is from East Anglia and appreciated the sheep 🐑 element. Otherwise she would have dumped me for someone less sartorially weird.

Who won the race? No idea.

Didn’t it use to be in colder times, Feb or March?

And - discussed on this thread no doubt - I now see as it takes into account the wimmin race it’s call the Boat Races, plural. I don’t mind. Though appreciate there will be some dinosaur reactionaries and chauvinists who simply hate that. Oh well. Time stops for no wo/man...
