The Boat Race has just finished.  As Son is a rower, it is an important fixture in our household.  Assuming you read the blog below, you will also appreciate that we were supporting the Dark Blue team.  It seems such a sad day for both teams. For Oxford as they lost and one of their crew had medical trouble, and for Cambridge for winning in such a unsatisfactory way.  To be unable to celebrate was plainly unpleasant and was certainly extremely uncomfortable viewing.  Better luck for a better race next year...
