The senior men’s squad (BR Level 4) is one of the strongest in the region competing at Henley Royal Regatta, Metropolitan Regatta, Marlow Regatta through the summer and Pairs Head, Fours Head, the Head of the River Race during the winter season.

City has a large intermediate men’s squad who compete on Cam and at local regattas. With regular coaching and the development of a common ‘City style’ the aim is to progress competitive rowers through from the intermediate squad to the senior squad. 

Across the squad we aim to train in a range of sweep and sculling boats with regular coaching both for the individual and for the crew. The club has a structured training programme which allows development of a balanced athlete through a combination of water outings, regular land based training: (ergs and weights) and work on core strength and flexibility.

Land training normally takes place on weekdays with water sessions held primarily at the weekend. with one or two weekday sessions depending on the crew. Crew selection is based on a number of factors (strength, flexibility, boat move-ability) and includes a standard set of erg tests in September, January and April. 

We’re always happy to welcome new members at all levels of fitness and experience and at any time of the year.

Strong results for City crews on the Thames

2016-FoursHead-CCRC Granta IM1 4x

City of Cambridge Rowing Club rowing with 2 members of Granta were the 9th fastest crew in the country in the Fours Head of the River race last Saturday. They were also the fastest of any of the Cambridge town crews. City's Jack Lawlor-Anderson and Tom Hetherington, joined by Charlie Cummins and Ben Mackworth from Granta were competing in the Intermediate 1 Open Quad category. The crew, all of whom are lightweight rowers, set off some way down the field and had to overtake a number of competitors down the length of the 4 1⁄4-mile championship course. Fired by their recent success at the British Rowing Championships, the quad beat forty crews including the Granta boat as well as local competitors from the Cantabrigian and 99's rowing clubs.

City also fielded three men's fours in Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 categories and a Junior Boys quad that raced for 'time only' in the (adult) Intermediate 1 category. In the event the Junior Boys achieved a time that would have seen them placed a very creditable 36th in the (adult) Intermediate 1 category. They were the third fastest Cambridge quad of any category.

City's Junior Girls coxed four put in a very strong performance in a tough field coming home 10th in their category behind some of the top sweep oar rowing schools and clubs in the country. City junior squad also entered a girls quad held their own in a tough field despite being younger than most of their competitors.

2016-VetFours-CCRC Masters C

The Club's success continued the following day where City of Cambridge's Masters C coxed four (average age above 43) came second in the Veteran's Fours Head. The crew, coxed by Jess Upton and comprising Tom Watt, Paul Worth, Mike Nahorski and Seb Walker, fought off strong competition from Marlow and Maidenhead rowing clubs, and were only beaten by an experienced London Rowing Club crew. The performance was all the more significant as Paul Worth had only started rowing two years ago and Mike Nahorski noviced with the club just three years ago. In the Masters A category (average age over 27) City's coxless four came third. The club also fielded a men's Intermediate 3 coxed four and a Women's Masters A quad for the event.
