Captains’ Welcome

We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome you to Christ College Boat Club’s new website, having taken on Captaincy this year. This is a very exciting time to be a member of CCBC, and we are going to be lucky enough to preside over the move to our new and much improved boat house in November. While our temporary residence in the porta cabin has not been unenjoyable, we are all greatly looking forward to having the extra space, which will allow us to spend time at and socialise in the boathouse more easily.

Last year was a very successful one for Christ’s, and we are looking to emulate the performance of the first boats in Bumps, after M1 achieved blades and W1 a result of +3, as well as continue the development of talent throughout the club. The Lower Boats Captains are ready to begin coaching the novices, and we are all looking forward to seeing the next generation of rowers at Christ’s begin to progress. If you are new to the College and looking for an activity that will make you friends across all years and provide you with some of the most memorable experiences of your life, both in and out of the boat, then come and give rowing a try.
