Cambridge challenged Oxford to the first race in 1829. The Boat Race is one of the biggest free sports events and over the years has captured worldwide interest.

The CUBC welcomes every Cambridge student, who is interested in trialing, no matter their rowing background. In recent years some of our most competitive athletes started rowing whilst at Cambridge. This is possible because of the top-level facilities, coaching and, most importantly, a competitive and supportive environment that pushes every athlete to reach their highest potential.
