Which Blue Are You? – the App

Don’t just watch The BNY Mellon Boat Race. Row it.

Now's your chance to row for your Blue, and win Boat Race merchandise – or even £5,000.

Turn your phone into an oar and row The BNY Mellon Boat Race for the Dark Blues of Oxford or the Light Blues of Cambridge.

A game of stamina and timing, you have to listen to your cox and pull in time with your crew. Match each stroke and it's victory. Miss too many and you can only lose. With realistic graphics and intuitive, addictive gameplay, it’s the next best thing to being in your Blue’s Boat.

Two Ways to Win

Submit the highest score by 27 April 2014, and you'll win £5,000 from sponsors BNY Mellon.
