First and Third boathouse - view larger picture here
The club's boathouse is one of the most spacious and comfortable on the river. The large main room has plenty of room for eight ergometers and sliders, as well as large patio doors on to a balcony and a carpetted area with comfortable chairs, with a tv for reviewing performance or for entertainment whilst training.
There is a separate Crew Room for away from noise and distractions. The 'weights-room' is now used mainly as a second Crew Room, with actual weights training taking place in the College Gym.
Other facilities include:
The main room
kit drying room
large changing rooms
a Lard Cupboard full of refreshments, which can be charged to College Bills via the computer
The main room is sued for the Fireworks Party each year, and in the past it has been used for drinks parties, BBQs, and even a very successful boat club dinner!
The postal address of the boathouse is First and Third Trinity Boat House, Kimberley Road, Cambridge, CB4 1HJ.

A total of eight Concept II ergs (four model Cs and four model Ds)

We rent some space to Homerton College's boat club. The boathouse therefore accommodates some thirteen VIIIs, five IVs, three or four pairs, and many sculling boats, many owned by local Cambridge residents or other boat clubs. For a full list of the Club's boats, click here.
The club also owns a trailer, bought in 1997, which we make good use of in travelling to regattas outside Cambridge, often taking boats belonging to other colleges too.
