There is a movement to withdraw the Oxford-Cambridge race in future from the Thames and London crowds, and remove it to Henley. The professionals don't think much of the race. The New York Times says of the crews and the race : "They are university men, and their friends have made the event fashionable, and added to this is the tremendous "spurt" which national taste has given to all kinds of out-door sports during the last quarter of a century. It was something like fifty years ago that boat-racing became a feature of university pastimes, and it was distinctly the introduction of Eton boys, who took with them to Oxford and Cambridge this especially popular sport of their youth. The first races on the Cam were "bumping" races; that is, one boat started first, and if the following crew could run their bow into the stern of the other this was victory. This led to regular racing as now in vogue, though "bumping" contests are still engaged in by the rural colleges, and they are often features of country regattas. It was in 1829, and in the summer, that the first race between Oxford and Cambridge was rowed at Henley-on-Thames."
