*** SMALLER BOATS REGATTA 2021 ***
With May Bumps cancelled, SCBC have entered 3 crews into the Smaller Boats Regatta! Today saw Nina Bugeja row fantastically in the Women's 1x race over the 1100m course, but with steering made difficult in the wind she was beaten to the finish by King's.
Tomorrow the Men's IV+ will be racing Magdalene in the first Semi Final, which is set to be an exciting race. They'll be joined on the river by our Coxing captain Hannah Lagorio, who has made very impressive progress to go from cox to rower in only a few weeks. She'll be racing Fitz in the Women's 2x final alongside Trinity Hall's Rebecca Hamilton, and you can catch up with their progress by searching @muscledmoos on instagram! ...

*** W1 RACE REPORT FROM CHAMPS EIGHT HEAD 16/05/21***
The first race of this term saw SCBC’s W1 boat give another strong and impressive performance. The race was a fantastic opportunity for the crew to put all their training into practice. At the beginning of the 1450m course, the crew began with a high rate and eventually settled into a steady and powerful rhythm which was held throughout the race. The crew maintained this solid performance, which saw them place 4th in their division.
SCBC women have been extremely excited to be back on the river and are now settling into their summer training. There are also currently three novice women's boats, which will hopefully mean that there will be a large pool of rowers for next term. This will hopefully help us produce another strong season leading up to Fairbairns in Michaelmas term.
All in all, SCBC womens have had a very solid start to the term and continue to look forward to future sessions on the river. ...

Thanks to everyone who got involved in our taster day! We had record interest this year with almost 80 people signing up to try rowing. We're sorry we couldn't get everyone in a boat, but we promise everyone who wants to get involved will be able to soon ❤💛
A special shoutout to the crew that got caught in the downpour - we hope you come back! ...
Before the start of term our senior rowers have tested all the safety measures that we have implemented following British Rowing and Government guidelines with regards to Covid. Through appropriate use of PPE and washing boats and blades with antibacterial reagents, as well as staggering crews pushing off times we will ensure maximum safety of everyone taking part in rowing at SCBC! We are all looking forward to welcoming Michaelmas term in full swing!❤️💛🚣🏼♂️ @ Selwyn College Boat Club ...
