Cambridge University won the 2017 Cancer Research UK Women's Boat Race in record time after taking advantage of a bad start by their rivals Oxford.
It was their fourth victory in the past five years although Cambridge still have an overall lead of 82-80.
A shaky start of missed strokes forced Cambridge further away from the Surrey bend than they might have liked, and a superb Oxford boat put itself a quarter-length ahead before Cambridge had developed any rhythm.
Oxford head coach Sean Bowden has revealed their victory over Cambridge in the 163rd edition of the Boat Race came after they encountered significant difficulties during their preparations.

Oxford's American president Michael DiSanto said: "It feels so good". Drifting over towards the Oxford crew, there were hints of oars touching. "I felt we owed the girls from past year when they sank, so setting a record is brilliant".
"It was hard work for a long time", Bowden said. We struggled week-in, week-out with boats that were just pretty terrible. The harder it is the more you can just savour it at the end. A slight clash ensued, out of which Oxford emerged the better and drew away to a length as the crews approached Hammersmith Bridge.
Vanquished Cambridge president Lance Tredell said his crew were "bitterly disappointed" not to back up their win from previous year.
