Novices

When you think about Cambridge, rowing never fails to come to mind. So while you’re here, why not give it a go?

Every year in Michaelmas term we put together multiple novice boats, where you can try your hand at rowing.

One of our novice women’s boats at Emma Sprints in Michaelmas 2018. The race is fancy dress, so the crew decided on an ‘Incredibles’ theme for the boat.

At the end of the term, we enter our novice boats for Novice Fairbairns where crews compete for the Novice Fairbairn Cup.

Novice term is a great way to meet people and get involved in college life. The boat club holds socials regularly, in college and with other colleges, ending with Boat Club Dinner at the end of term.
