Welcome to the website of Christ’s College Boat Club – we are your Captains Georgia and Alex.
Founded in 1830, rowing is still a thriving part of life at Christ’s, and one of the largest social and sporting clubs at the college. Whether you are new to rowing or a seasoned veteran, we have crews catering to different levels of experience and commitment, and a successful novice programme running each Michelamas.
We would like to thank the committees who have steered the club through the pandemic, but especially the previous captains, Katy and Rich. We’re excited to finally be returning to normality, and have so much to look forward to – including yoga brunches, charity fundraising, and the return of our annual training camp abroad.
Rowing is like no other sport – combining strength, agility and technical grace. The water fast becomes a home for many. The Michaelmas 2021 term saw our largest intake in recent memory, including the two of us! We’ve both had a different journey toward becoming captains – Georgia having rowed since she was a child and Alex going into his second year of rowing having learnt at Christ’s – but we’re both united in a shared love for the club and our beautiful sport.
Now is a very exciting time for the club, with our W1 crew’s recent victory in winning blades in the 2022 May Bumps. We have some fresh ideas on how to translate the strength of our community to results on the water, and want everyone to be able to find a lifelong passion for rowing!
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Best Water Wishes,
Captain of Boats and Women’s Captain
