Will the 2nd VIII or the women get into the 1st division first?
The women are surely far too low in the rankings, starting 1st in division 2, but after holding off Queens they will be hard pushed to take a fast Darwin crew before the Darwin crew bumps out. The 2nd VIII could also move into the top flight on day one if they can manage the extraordinary and take down Caius II in Div 2 followed by Peterhouse in Div 1 as sandwich boat. Who will do it first?
Men II  19%
Women I  45%

Where will you be on Boat Race day?
Last year I watched the Boat Race on television, which had the advantage of me being able to see the whole race (although sadly not the Goldie/Isis race), but the disadvantage of missing out on the brilliant atmosphere on the bank. This year, ITV have the television rights, so I'll probably head down to London. What will everyone else be doing?

On Boat Race day, I will be...
On the bank at Hammersmith watching the action live  32%
In a pub along the course  9%
Watching on the big screens  15%
In the launch  0%
Listening on the radio  6%
Watching on television  56%
Supporting Cambridge  94%
Supporting Oxford  0%
Wearing an item of Cambridge Blue clothing  29%
Drunk  26%
Revising :(  15%
Not watching the boat race, I have better things to do with my time  0%
