A look inside the stunning Boat Race 2017 events on board TLC
The world-famous annual Boat Race between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge has over 160 years of rich history attached to it.
TLC is delighted to have taken our own place once again with our vessels Erasmus and Elizabethan uniquely positioned alongside Putney Pier to witness the start of the races with two of our most long-standing charterers on board, the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford.
For over 15 years Thames Luxury Charters' vessels have played host to the Vice-Chancellors and guests of these two great universities and this year proved no exception. The Oxford event was hosted by the Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord Patten of Barnes, on the chic triple-deck Erasmus while Cambridge hosted their afternoon tea-themed gathering on the beautiful Mississippi paddle steamer Elizabethan.
With courtesy of both universities, we are delighted to share with you a selection of photos from day which beautifully capture the excitement and spirit of the day and showcase the vessels bedecked in eye-catching banners, bunting and flags, plus anything else which could help inspire their team on the start line!
