Isis is the reserve Oxford heavyweight men's crew, and Goldie the reserve heavyweight men's crew for Cambridge. The two eights race each other half an hour before the main boat race (ie at 4pm on Sunday April 6th 2003) and over the same course. Crew members do not win "Blues" but Isis or Goldie "colours" for their efforts, and should any member of the Blue Boats be unable to race, one of the reserves is likely to take their place.
