  • Boat Race

The Men's Boat Race must also start 30 minutes before high tide in Putney, meaning the race is likely to change time each year in order to meet the requirements.

The discovery is believed to be on the route of the iconic boat race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities which is set to take place tomorrow.

"Despite winning last year, the Light Blues are virtually friendless to win this year's race and with a biggest bet of just 28 pounds, they are being left in the wake of Oxford punters who are splashing the cash", said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

This year the Boat Race 2017 is known as the "Cancer Research UK Boat Race", this competition of generations between men began in the year 1829 and between the women began in the year 1927.

Both the men and women now row the same course.

They pass under Hammersmith Bridge, around the Surrey Bend, past Chiswick Steps and under Barnes Bridge.
