Cambridge challenged Oxford to the first race in 1829. The Boat Races are one of the biggest free sports events and over the years have captured worldwide interest.
CUBC welcomes every Cambridge student who is interested in trialing, no matter their rowing background. The club runs men’s and women’s squads and puts out openweight and lightweight crews to race Oxford in the Boat Races. 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.
The Family of Liliane Lindsay, CUWBC & M.Phil ‘19 wish to be amongst the very first to honour this unprecedented move by the storied rowing clubs of the University of Cambridge. With both a nod to the past and an eye toward the future, it is with great confidence that we bestow but a small token upon this great One Club endeavour in honour of Gerard U.S. Kuenning, its inaugural Secretary. With special thanks to Coaches Baker, Ryan & Weber for their abiding guidance, insight and foresight.
Dr & Mrs Robert Lindsay
