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.

Welsh Gold for Barney

City keep up their tradition of medals at the Concept 2 Welsh Indoor rowing champions with a Gold for Barney Price in Open Lightweight men and Adam Scrivner picked up a Bronze in Mens Heavyweight 30-39

Valiant effort at Peterborough 500m

City men bagged more pots at Peterborough Summer 500m winning IM2 eights (Clare College came second but got a false start for wearing City Kit!). 

Russell is now winning the competition to win the most pots this season with a haul of ten pots!

Another double for Mighty

After getting through to the final of elite lightweight sculls at Marlow, Mighty Ben Redman did the double at Peterborough Summer 1000m winning IM1 and IM2 single sculls on Saturday.

Dave and Stephen followed up their win at the vets fours head and top 100 place at the pairs head with a win at Masters A/B 2x on Sunday.

Plates at Bedford

M1 continue a successful weekend beating Xpress by a length and Bedford by 3/4 to win IM2 eights at Bedford Sprint.

Sava and Michal aded to their tally with a win in the coxless pair at IM2 and the novice A eight beat Norwich RC in a straight final by one and a half lengths.

The womens IM2 8+, novice double and Bex's WJ14 1x were also finalists in their events.

Medals at Henley Masters

Congratulations to Barney, Russ, Ben and James who were steered to victory over the Army by Jess in a straight final at Henley Masters in Masters A coxed fours. 

Rowing in a somewhat less than ideal borrowed boat led to very close race and set the stage for an even closer race in the final of Masters A eights - another clash between City and Army crews. This time luck was on the Army's side pulling out to a length and a quarter through the middle of the race but with City pulling it back to 2/3rds of a length and closing on the line.

City through to Thursday at Henley Royal Regatta
