The Varsity Collection and Livestream (One of the most historic, prestigious rowing events in the world)
The annual Varsity Race in the Netherlands is one of the most historic, prestigious rowing events in the world and home to many of the sport’s greatest and most eccentric traditions. The event includes a naked swim out to the victorious crew; traditional blazer-fights; and the post-race kroegjool festivities.
For the 136th anniversary last year, Rowing Blazers made a special capsule collection co-branded with The Varsity using their historic Jutphaas emblem.
Unfortunately, the race has been cancelled this year but all is not lost! There will be a “livestream" of last year’s regatta. The broadcast will be begin at 11:28 CEST (5:28 a.m. EST) on Sunday, April 5th.
This year would have marked the 137th anniversary of the race.
