Captain’s Update

Welcome to the website of Christ’s College Boat Club, founded in 1830 and still one of the most popular societies for members of Christ’s College 190 years later.

Your captains for the 2020/2021 academic year are Herbie Lambden and Erin Fitzsimons-West, both of whom are entering their third year after two years with the club.

The year just gone saw much-changed senior crews take to the water, in addition to a bumper group of novices who quickly made their presence felt in the upper boats, particularly W1, whose crew was made up predominantly of ex-novices. We regret the curtailment of the 2019/2020 season as the huge development seen amongst all crews over Michaelmas and Lent foreshadowed a successful May Bumps campaign for CCBC.

Learning to row while at Cambridge is a unique opportunity and one which we hope to offer to as many members of Christ’s as possible. In spite of the ongoing crisis and the many challenges it poses, we are intent on offering a fulfilling rowing experience to novices and returning seniors alike. We look to build upon the improvement of the club’s social calendar and training programme seen last year and to convert this momentum into racing success on the Cam.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any queries.
