The 150th anniversary of the Harvard-Yale Regatta—the country’s oldest collegiate sporting event—was held Sunday, June 7, on the Thames River in Connecticut. The Yale Bulldogs were dominant in the competition, setting the upstream course record in the 4-mile race, crossing the line in 18 minutes, 35.8 seconds and winning by 16.7 seconds. It was Yale’s largest margin of victory since 1983 and only its 6th win since that date. Harvard has won 14 of the last 15 regattas.
