Rowing on the Cam


Cambridge is famous for rowing the world over.  The River Cam is central to this and there are over 35 hugely active rowing clubs in Cambridge alone.  There are also major events each year such as the Town Bumps and the May Bumps.


If you are interested in taking up rowing then begin with these clubs:

St Radegund Boat Club

City of Cambridge Rowing Club

Champion of the Thames Rowing Club

Rob Roy Boat Club

X-Press Boat Club

Cantabrigian Rowing Club

Cambridge '99 Rowing Club


We also meet regularly with representatives from the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association and the Cambridge University Combined Boat Club.  So if you have an issue on the River related to rowing then please raise it through your committee to discuss it with us.
