About the Club

The Club's Boats

The boat club owns a number of boats of different sizes. Most college rowing is done in eights, most famously the Lent and May Bumps. The notable exception to this is the University IVs competition, which is raced mainly in coxed fours, with the elite men's event taking place in coxless fours (known as light fours uniquely in this competition).

The other boats used for racing are coxless pairs (which can also be set up as double sculls) and single sculls, which are collectively known as small boats. These boats are used primarily as aids to training, but they get a rare taste of competition during a series of races at the start of each May Term known as the Small Boats Regatta.

This page lists both those boats that are still used by the Club and those that are sadly no longer with us, sorted by their sizes. The current boats are listed with their most recent official crews, all boats with the number of events they have been used in, and the eights with the number of bumps races they have raced and their bumps aggregate.
