Row for Oxford

The OUBC exists to produce crews to race against Cambridge in the annual Men’s Boat Race. Dating back to 1829, the 4 ¼ mile side-by-side race on the challenging tidal reaches of the river Thames in London provides one of the most demanding challenges in the world of rowing for the students who take part in it.

Whilst the Boat Race defines its mission, the club also has an enviable record of creating and attracting international standard rowers. 17 Olympic gold medals have been won by Oxford rowers since 1992 alone.

” I can’t speak highly enough of my time rowing for OUBC. The coaching is second to none, the training is cutting edge and the entire experience is unparalleled. I would not have made it to the Rio Olympics without the lessons I learned rowing for Oxford.”
