Two New Zealand rowers have helped the Cambridge women's eight to a record breaking win over Oxford in the annual boat race on the Thames in London.
Hamilton's Alice White and Christchurch's Anna Dawson were part of the Cambridge crew to win the race for the first time since 2012 after Oxford, which included Whanganui's Harriet Austin had a horror start.
Oxford's Rebecca Esselstein made an error with her oar, known as catching a crab, and her crew never recovered.
It allowed the Light Blues, featuring four members of last year's crew who almost sank on the river, to quickly get into their rhythm and they were never headed.
Cambridge winning 11 lengths in a course record of 18 minutes and 33 seconds.
In the men's race Oxford made it four wins in five years after beating Cambridge by just over a length in the 163rd boat race.
In the men's race, Oxford started better and showed their strength over the course, finishing in a time of 16 minutes 59 seconds.
Sunday's races had been in doubt after a suspected World War Two shell was discovered by the River Thames and there was more drama at the start of the women's race.
