City of Cambridge has a vibrant womens squad with a history of strong performances at local and national rowing events.  At the highest level we compete at the tideway heads, the 2000m multi-lanes at Eton and Henley Womens Regatta.

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

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