The Boat House

The club is fortunate to have one of the best boathouses on the Cam. The boathouse features a boat bay, two training rooms, a bar, lounge, along with separate men's and ladies' changing facilities, toilets and showers.

The boathouse sits across the river from Midsummer Common, with great views across the water. The boathouse is accessible at any time of the day to those who want to train outside of planned sessions. 

The club sits less than 100m away from the famous Cambridge University Goldie Boathouse, and sits alongside various town and college boat clubs.

Visits from prospective members are always welcome, however it is always best to make contact with one of the captains before visiting. They will be more than happy to show you around the boat house.

Training Facilities

There are three main aspects to effective land training for rowing: Ergometer Pieces, Weights Training and Core Training.

On the first floor of the club is a well lit and ventilated training room, which is equipped with 15 ergometers, free weights including Olympic bars and bench press, one watt bike, and a stretching area.

Downstairs is a multi-gym equipped with a power rack, leg-press machine, dips & pull-up bars, and more.

The club has a weights training scheme for developing essential strength, along with different core circuits based on the individual's ability.

Coxes have access to a room filled with cox boxes and orbs, head sets and tool kits. Come Spring 2019 there will be a new Cox Room with changing and individual storage facilities.

The Fleet

The club competes in both sculling and sweep events, and our fleet matches our commitment to these events. In the boat bays, we have several Eights, Fours (Both bowloader and sternloader) and Pairs. For sculling, we have an Oct, several Quads, Doubles and Single sculls.

For training and learning, there is a tub and two sculling play boats.

Bar and Social

After weekend outings, the bar and kitchen opens with hot food for the hungry returning crews, thanks to the valiant effort of volunteers in the club.

The bar is fully stocked and opens during our frequent social events across the year.
