Guide to the Boat Race crews: Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club
Tricia Smith is the only returning Blue for Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club.
The 25-year-old bow seat retains the position that she held in the Light Blue crew in the seven-length win over Oxford in 2018.
Lily Lindsay, Sophie Deans and Kate Horvat all rowed together at Yale, and join forces again for Cambridge.
Denmark international Ida Gortz Jacobsen will be in the No 7 seat, and behind her will be former GB rower Pippa Whittaker. Hugh Spaughton will cox the crew.
