Hear About Oxford Women In The Boat Race
A Chiswick Pier Trust event featuring the crew's head coach
The Women's Boat Race will make its historic move from Henley to the Tideway in 2015. For the first time since the men's racing rivalry began in 1829, the Oxford Women will race Cambridge from Putney to Mortlake.
Find out how they are preparing and what are the particular challenges of our stretch of the river from the head coach of the Oxford Women's crew, Christine Wilson in her talk on Tuesday 3rd March, at 7.30pm, organised by the Chiswick Pier Trust.
The event will take place in the Trust's centre at Corney Reach Way, W4 2UG.
Christine has an extensive international coaching career spanning Olympic, University and School rowing. She was formerly assistant coach to the U.S. Women’s Olympic Team, Head Coach of women’s rowing at Yale and Cornell and was the first woman to coach men at a major American university programme. The overall record of the Women's Boat Race is Cambridge 40, Oxford 29, but since Oxford's victory in 2000, the Dark Blues have won eleven of the last fourteen races.
For evening talks, the doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets are free to members of the Chiswick Pier Trust or £3.
