Social Life at SCBC

The social side of rowing is as big an attraction for many as the sport itself! From start of term curries to pub crawls to the infamous boat club dinner, life as a Selwyn boatie is never boring. Have a look below for a snapshot of what we get up to when we’re not on the water.


Swaps are basically where two college boat clubs get together and have a great time. Swaps are always really good fun and a great way both to meet people from other colleges and to get to know your own crew. Our social secretaries organise multiple swaps each term with various colleges, giving boat club members a very full social calendar.

Boat Club Dinner:

The unrivalled highlight of the SCBC (and possibly Cambridge) social calendar, BCD is held three times a year, after the biggest races of each term. It’s a chance to get all dressed up and enjoy an awesome night of boatie banter ending, of course, with a bop in the Selwyn diamond. Completely unmissable!
