At the highest level we compete at the tideway heads, the 2000m multi-lanes at Eton and we aim to compete at Henley Royal Regatta.

Athletes looking to join us at this standard should expect one day off a week but otherwise to be training each evening and weekends with some days training on more than one occasion.

We provide regular coaching on the water and strength and conditioning coaching and specialist advice through our relationship with Core Cambridge.

We run a squad system so less experienced rowers, including complete beginners, can learn to row and progress through the club as they improve and many of our most successful oarsmen have learned to row at the club.

Squad Meetings

New Season - 2015/16

As a kick start to the new season our men's and women's squads will be holding meetings on the follwoing dates in the City of Cambridge boathouse;

Men's Squad - Friday 28th August 19:00

Women's Squad - Saturday 5th September 08:00

These meetings provide you the chance to let your respective captains know what your aims and objectives are for the 2015/16 season, whether thats in a single, aiming for a seat in the top boat or masters rowing, it's important that the club knows what you want to do so we can support it.

City of Oxford Regatta

We had a number of City crews racing at City of Oxford Royal Regatta on 15th and 16th August from our Junior squad and from our noivice men's squad.

The regatta is set over two days, Saturday is raced over 1000m and Sunday is a sprint race over 500m. All the City crews performed well with some strong results:

 Our juniors (as always) turned up in force in mulitple boats, 
on Saturday Pernille won WIM2 1x and our WJ15 4+ made the final.
On Sunday, Jack and Bartu fell short in the final of IM1 2- (some dodgy steering from the opposition) as unfortunately did our WJ16 2x.

For some of our juniors it was their last regatta as City Juniors as they now move onto the next stages of their careers. Best of luck guys - just make sure there's a river where you're going and don't forget to visit!!

Juniors Oxford

The Juniors were also accompanied by an 8+ from our novice men who split into two fours on Sunday. One of our men's novice fours (two of which only learned to row a couple of months ago) stormed the competition to win Novice 4+'s! - Must be something about our learn to row course!

Oxford Novice fours

Congratulations to the guys in the four, always a great achievement to get rid of your novice status.
