Cambridge women maintained their dominance over their Oxford counterparts with a fifth successive Boat Race victory in the 76th edition of the women’s race and set a new record in the process.

The aggressive start by the defending champions paid off despite umpire John Garrett repeatedly telling Light Blues cox Jasper Parish to alter the line of his boat.

After establishing a healthy advantage at the halfway point of the traditional showpiece, Cambridge never let up and won in a record time of 18 minutes and 22.936 seconds on the race’s return to the River Thames after nearly three years away.

While Oxford’s cox Joe Gellet appealed for a disqualification, umpire Garrett turned it down to confirm another win for Cambridge.
