The 20th April 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of the formation of City of Cambridge Rowing Club, the oldest town club on the Cam. Thank you to everyone who made the occasion such a great success. Here's to a historic year to come, and many more to follow.

Bronze for Bella at NJIRC

Bella wins Bronze
Bella Fowlie won a bronze medal at the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships (NJIRC), the largest indoor rowing competition in the world, with 2500 juniors from across the country competing. Bella finished a fantastic 3rd of 198 in the Year 7 category with a new PB of 510m in the two minute race. 14 other City juniors competed, with many achieving new PBs and placing competitively in their age categories, including 5th of 196 for Camille in Year 10 girls and 16th of 156 for Steven in Year 10 boys.

Strong performances at Eastern Region trials


Pernille (WJ16 1x), Camille (WJ15 1x) and Katherine and Becca (WJ15 2x) attended trials for the Eastern Region team. All four raced brilliantly to produce some very competitive results, which stand them in good stead for the coming season. Camille and Pernille's results in singles earned them places in the Region's composite 8+, which won in a race-off against the top crews in the region for selection for 'Team East' at the Junior Inter-Regional Regatta.

Four crews represented the club at the National Junior Sculling Head at Dorney Lake, with several juniors taking part in their first national-level race. The top performance came from the WJ17 quad, who ranked 5th in their category and recorded the fastest time in the region.

Crews and results are:

  • WJ17 4x - Anna, Izzie, Pernille, Amy: 5th of 19
  • J17 4x - Jack S, Bartu, Ben, Jack G: 12th of 16
  • WJ15 4x+ - Becca, Katherine, Camille, Alice: 32nd of 60

A crew made up of M2 and M3 also raced and finished 2nd in IM3 8+. In a race which was the first off-cam race for many of the crew this was a strong performance.

The mens squad now has three crews entered into HoRR on 29th March.

Junior Rowing Taster Days

City of Cambridge's Junior Squad regularly run taster days for 11-18 year olds (Years 7-13) interested in trying out rowing.

The taster day allows participants to try the key aspects of rowing training, including a session in a boat on the river, training on the indoor rowing machines and a core stability and fitness session. The day, which is coached by the squad's coaches and older junior rowers, culminates in a mini-rowing competition.

The next taster day will be on Friday 2 June 2017 10am–4pm, for ages approx 12–16. The cost is £25, payable on the day.
