The Scottish Boat Race Festival

The Scottish Boat Race Festival

The Scottish Boat Race is an annual rowing race which is contested by the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow, two of the largest universities and boat clubs in Scotland. Established in 1877, it is the third oldest university boat race in the world after the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race (1829) and the Yale-Harvard Regatta (1852). The 2019 Scottish Boat Race will take place on the Clyde starting at the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge and finish opposite the Glasgow Science Centre Tower.

The event will consist of eight different races, a mixed graduate race, both men’s and women’s novices (beginners), men’s and women’s second eight, men’s and women’s first eight and a 2km ergometer team challenge consisting of two male (one novice, one senior) and two female (also one novice, one senior) athletes.
