The University is excited to announce the official men's and women's squads for the 2019 Australian Boat Race.
The annual race encapsulates the 160-year rivalry between Australia's oldest universities, Melbourne and Sydney.
The 2019 chapter will take place on the Yarra River, following a 4.5km course from Toorak to the heart of the Melbourne CBD.
It will be Chris Hargreaves' third Australian Boat Race, but his first on the Yarra.
"One aspect I’m looking forward to is the atmosphere," he told Melbourne University Sport.
"Having a peloton of bikes following the race and other supporters lining the riverbank makes this a unique racing experience compared to when we’re on Sydney Harbour."
Women's coxswain Phoebe Georgakas is also looking forward to racing on home water.
"The aim is always to execute our best race on the day, but a bit of a home-ground advantage might help us in winning back the women’s trophy for Melbourne Uni," she said.
