The Scottish Boat Race, also known as the Edinburgh vs. Glasgow Boat Race, is believed to be the third oldest varsity boat race in the world. Predated only by the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race and the Yale-Harvard Regatta, it sees crews from the University of Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh compete on the River Clyde.


This year's race will take place on Saturday 25 May on the Clyde. The official viewing area will be at the Glasgow Science Centre. The event will consist of eight different races, a mixed graduate race, both men’s and women’s novices (beginners), men’s and women’s second eight, men’s and women’s first eight and a 2km ergometer team challenge consisting of two male (one novice, one senior) and two female (also one novice, one senior) athletes.


Return tickets will be £3.00 with buses departing from Appleton Tower at 11.30am and leaving Glasgow at 5pm following the trophy presentations.
