Dr Victoria Avery, The Fitzwilliam Museum said "The Boat Race is an annual sporting highlight for millions but very few people have ever had the chance to see the winners’ trophies up close. And even fewer realise that the Blue Boat trophies are actually significant examples of contemporary British silver"
Nick Brooking, Cambridge University’s Director of Sport said, "We were delighted when our colleagues at the Fitzwilliam Museum reacted so positively to our request for help and have added their professional expertise to make sure the trophies now shine brilliantly and also to tell the story around them.”
The Boat Race Company Limited (BRCL) Chair, Tim Senior, said “Aside from being the rewards for immense sporting endeavour, the Boat Race trophies are beautiful works of art in themselves.
