• Short Summary

    Cambridge boat race crew in training on the Thames - rowing scenes on the river.

  • Description

    Preparations for the Oxford and Cambridge boat race - the rowing teams train.

    Full title reads: "Goring-on-Thames. 'Will Cambridge win 9th consecutive year?' It certainly looks like it at this stage of their training. Watch their well-nigh perfect rhythm - & 'power behind the blade'!"

    Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

    Cambridge University rowers in their boat on the River Thames. They move away from their support boat. Back view as the boat rows away from the camera. (Odd cut) The boat is heading for the arch of a bridge. We are following from another boat. They are not moving very fast. Side view of the crew in the boat as they row.

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    N.B. This story and the one about Oxford were originally one item.
