At the highest level we compete at the tideway heads, the 2000m multi-lanes at Eton and we aim to compete at Henley Royal Regatta.
Athletes looking to join us at this standard should expect one day off a week but otherwise to be training each evening and weekends with some days training on more than one occasion.
We provide regular coaching on the water and strength and conditioning coaching and specialist advice through our relationship with Core Cambridge.
We run a squad system so less experienced rowers, including complete beginners, can learn to row and progress through the club as they improve and many of our most successful oarsmen have learned to row at the club.

Strong results for City crews on the Thames
- Published on Tuesday, 15 November 2016 14:17
City of Cambridge Rowing Club rowing with 2 members of Granta were the 9th fastest crew in the country in the Fours Head of the River race last Saturday. They were also the fastest of any of the Cambridge town crews. City's Jack Lawlor-Anderson and Tom Hetherington, joined by Charlie Cummins and Ben Mackworth from Granta were competing in the Intermediate 1 Open Quad category. The crew, all of whom are lightweight rowers, set off some way down the field and had to overtake a number of competitors down the length of the 4 1⁄4-mile championship course. Fired by their recent success at the British Rowing Championships, the quad beat forty crews including the Granta boat as well as local competitors from the Cantabrigian and 99's rowing clubs.
City also fielded three men's fours in Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 categories and a Junior Boys quad that raced for 'time only' in the (adult) Intermediate 1 category. In the event the Junior Boys achieved a time that would have seen them placed a very creditable 36th in the (adult) Intermediate 1 category. They were the third fastest Cambridge quad of any category.
City's Junior Girls coxed four put in a very strong performance in a tough field coming home 10th in their category behind some of the top sweep oar rowing schools and clubs in the country. City junior squad also entered a girls quad held their own in a tough field despite being younger than most of their competitors.
The Club's success continued the following day where City of Cambridge's Masters C coxed four (average age above 43) came second in the Veteran's Fours Head. The crew, coxed by Jess Upton and comprising Tom Watt, Paul Worth, Mike Nahorski and Seb Walker, fought off strong competition from Marlow and Maidenhead rowing clubs, and were only beaten by an experienced London Rowing Club crew. The performance was all the more significant as Paul Worth had only started rowing two years ago and Mike Nahorski noviced with the club just three years ago. In the Masters A category (average age over 27) City's coxless four came third. The club also fielded a men's Intermediate 3 coxed four and a Women's Masters A quad for the event.
