Notes:

The Course is Putney to Mortlake except 1829 (Henley); Westminster to Putney 1839-42; Mortlake to Putney 1846, 1856, 1862 and 1863

The first Boat Race was in 1829 but did not become an annual event until 1856. There were also interruptions during the two world wars. This table shows all the races since 1829.
