Welcome to the Churchill College Boat Club website
Churchill College Boat Club was founded in 1961, soon after the College itself. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength, with our first boats generally being found in the first divisions of both May and Lent Bumps. In 2015, CCBC was the most successful college club in Cambridge, winning both the Marconi and Pegasus Cups for best overall club in bumps.
Membership is open to all members of Churchill College, and contrary to popular belief it does not involve getting up at 5 o'clock every morning! The club caters for everyone, whether they want to row once a week or once a day, and all crews are encouraged to enter the many rowing events that take place on the Cam throughout the year.
The club tries to emphasise the social aspect of rowing as much as the physical side, and formal swaps with other colleges are a regular occurrence. At the end of every term there is the legendary Boat Club Dinner, a huge formal hall in College where everyone can celebrate the term's achievements in the traditional way - by the responsible consumption of alcohol.
Our website tells you all about rowing at Churchill College and includes results, race reports, photos, and a section on how get involved and start rowing yourself! We also have a Youtube channel full of videos of our crews in action.
