The crews were forbidden from racing side-by-side, so Cambridge rowed the 0.5-mile (0.80 km) course first, followed by Oxford. The contest was won by Cambridge in a time of 3 minutes 32.4 seconds, beating Cambridge by 0.4 seconds.[4] The victory took the overall record in the competition to 1–1.[2]
