Senior VIIIs

From 1929 until 1989, the races were held over the old standard course (Fort St. George Footbridge to Little Bridge). The Women's event began in 1976. In 1990, due to work on the Victoria Road Bridge, a new course (Jesus College Boathouse flagpole to Little Bridge) was started and has since become standard.
