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.

City fastest CRA eight

City's masters A eight picked up pots today for the fastest CRA crew at the Head of the Cam. Rowing in a tailwind the crew finished 6th overall in a time of 9:09 which was also the faastest masters time. 

The masters D eight scooped the second fastest adjusted masters time of 9:27.

Novices do the double

City novices got a clean sweep at the Radegund mile winning both mens and womens categories and taking second place in the mens novice eights.

Masters first and second at Rad mile

The President's Masters D eight was the fastest eight at the Radegund mile in an adjusted time of 5:41. Rowing in an unseasonal hailstorm the masters a eight took second place in a time of 5:53.

The men also won at IM3 coxed fours (also fastest four) continuing their run of success from Bedford fours and small boats. 

Novices win Winter League

City Men Win Winter League Novice 8's

On the morning of the Third Winter League Leg, City Novice A crew knew they had a six seconds lead on X-Press Legends. The first leg had been slightly disappointing after we fell apart through lack of fitness after the Railway Bridge. Our coach Ben Duckworth called for 5K erg sessions leading up to the final leg and which happened to coincide with the river freezing over, so more land training it was. Dividends quickly paid off in the second leg where we marginally improved our time while the three novice boats (Legends, Rad M1 and Chesterton) that had beaten us in the first leg fell off by around 30 seconds each.

More Gold for Mighty

Mighty Ben Wins Gold for Wales

A bronze and a gold for Ben Redman in Ghent last weekend, he may have worn the Welsh kit but we know he was racing for City really!...

On Saturday it was the "International Belgian Championships", and on Sunday it was the "International Ghent May Regatta" (which is apparently the Belgian National championships). They're both held in Gent, which is a fantastic 5 lane course that finishes in Gent town, and has high banks and lots of trees/buildings around so it avoids the worst of side winds.
