Cambridge University Boat Club unveil athletes for 2024 men’s and women’s Gemini Boat Races

The crews for this year’s Gemini Boat Race were officially unveiled at Battersea Power Station in London this evening.

Cambridge University Boat Club will be looking for a repeat of last year’s clean sweep at the expense of their old foes Oxford on race day, which this year is scheduled for Saturday, 30 March.

And the defending champions have tonight named the 16 athletes – plus the two cox – that will go in search of glory once again.
