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.

Junior girls selected for Team East!

The J16 boys, J16 girls and J15 girls headed to Dorney Lake (the Olympic venue) for the Scullery National Junior Sculling Head, one of the main junior races of the calendar.  With less than ideal conditions (very cold, very wet), the juniors raced against other schools and clubs from across the country over either 3.6km (J15) or 5.4km (J16).


City of Cambridge Rowing Club 150th Anniversary Celebrations

On the 20th April 2013 we are running a sprint regatta (for present and past members of City) followed by black tie dinner at St John's College.

We hope this event will be a fantastic opportunity for old friends to meet up, have a laugh (and possibly win a pot!) in a 350m sprint followed by a drinks reception & black tie dinner.

It will also be an opportunity for the club to gather some historical data to create a 150th Anniversary book to commemorate the occasion. For details of the programme and to book your place please visit:
