If you have any queries, please get in touch with the club's welfare officer, Fiona Gabrielczyk. The welfare officer is responsible for ensuring we follow British Rowing's Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy and that Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously CRB checks) are carried out.

City in the 50's

Many thanks to Peter Jennings for writing this...
In 1949 Cambridge Town Rowing Club I, as CCRC was then, won their oars bumping four crews who no longer exist ( Beehives I, New Museums I, Scouts I and Pye I ) gaining them third place behind '99 I and Rob Roy I. 1950 was a year of change, not only in the name of the club as Cambridge became a City. The crew lost several older members who retired and it rowed over on all four nights.

Learn to Row
Adult Beginner's 10 session rowing course
CCRC runs regular adult beginner rowing courses
The course is aimed at people who have never rowed before (if you already know how to row, please see one of our squads page under 'Rowing'). We aim to teach basic technique to a standard whereby beginners can move into the relevant men's and women's intermediate squads or into regular crews. The session is coached by members of the men's and women's squad. The course lasts 5 weeks, and consists of :
- Rowing - 2 sessions a week (Saturday/Sunday times can vary)
- Circuit training - Mondays 7pm
- Coached Ergo (Rowing Machine) training
We provide a coach and cox to instruct you, and all required equipment.
|Current and planned courses|
Starting 18 March 2017
Starting 20 May 2017
If demand is high we may be offering a one day taster courses - details to be confirmed.
Please register interest via the sign up link (bottom of page) and we will be in touch.
To participate, you must:
- Be over 18 years old (we have a separate juniors program)
- Be able to swim at least 50 metres in light clothing (rowing kit)
- Be able to tread water for at least two minutes
- Be able to swim under water for at least 5 metres
- Have sufficient general health so that a moderate amount of exercise won't cause a problem
- Take out temporary membership with the club for the duration of the course: (see Membership information)
- Be available on your chosen day for the duration of the course (short absences are fine)
To be compatible with rowing, you need:
- Availability - commitments that allow you to be somewhat flexible with outing times and days, including evenings and weekends
- Reliability (especially punctuality)
- Coachability (being willing to put into practice what a coach says)
The club is focused on sweep rowing (one oar each) and this is all we teach on the beginners course
Rowing clubs are a great way to make new friends and CCRC has the most active social scene on the river. We have the best and most frequent parties on the river, and are one of the only two boathouses with a bar.
Whilst waiting for the course to start, you're welcome to participate in the circuit training sessions on Monday nights where you can also see what the club is like and meet some of the members. They are start at 7pm, at the City boathouse, just let the organisers know you're a new potential beginner. (Try to get there a bit early as the sessions are very popular). These sessions are free.
