"who do they race" - Brazeneck College?

Nowadays, aye, but which institution would Ridcully have raced fifty-plus years ago? --Knmatt 15:08, 6 December 2007 (CET)

The Krullian wizards, perhaps? (If there was any link between a Krullian university and UU). Or maybe Unki, QIS, or Chubb, if they were around back then (as they are only mentioned as places where Bengo Macarona went). Or maybe just the other guilds or even the city... the wizards and guilds used to play football, so why not rowing as well? TC01 19:53, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I think a Town and Gown race would have attracted enormous interest. --Knmatt 20:10, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps there were even local public teams. Again, no evidence, but there is no reason against it. Perhaps they stopped as the Ankh got more dangerous to race on (presumably it got more polluted as Ankh-Morpork grew. --Confusion (talk) 07:58, 1 January 2014 (GMT)
