Oxford name their boat ‘Daniel’ in honour of the late, great Daniel Topolski
Topolski – pictured here with his treasured companion Basia Briggs – features on the official Boat Race website as one of this annual event’s personalities. He was part of the winning crew in 1967, the losing crew in 1968 and coached Oxford between 1973 and 1987, winning twelve of fifteen races. After his departure, he provided analysis for the BBC and sadly passed away far too young at the age of 69 on 21st February 2015.
On Sunday 27th March, The Steeple Times urges readers to back ‘Daniel’.
