Our Women’s Squad had a super 2020/21 campaign with the Development 4+ racing on the Saturday at Henley Women’s Regatta. The 8+ had a great race at MET regatta making the D final of club 8’s, but unfortunately had their season cut short due to COVID and missing out on what was guaranteed to be great racing at Henley Women’s Regatta.

It was a great end to the season for our Men’s Senior Squad capping off their great Bumps campaign by qualifying both a 4- and 8+ for the Wyfold Challenge Cup and Thames Challenge Cup. Unfortunately the second 8+ narrowly missed out on one of the coveted 32 places but are coming back into the new season hungrier than ever!

The results put the squad in a very strong place for a very successful 2021/22 campaign. If you want to row at City contact ccrcseniorcaptain@gmail.com

Superb racing from our Women’s Development 4+ reaching the Saturday races at Women’s Henley Regatta.

We were sad to announce we had withdrawn our 8+ from racing at Henley Women’s Regatta. One of our athletes in the boat tested positive Thursday evening for Coronavirus during a lateral flow test, the rest of our crew subsequently tested negative, however due to the timing we were unable to receive a PCR result in time for today’s race. We will continue to observe the situation following the government and British Rowing guidelines.

Starting 3 July and ending 23 July (with an option for people to cox with City over the summer if they want)

Coxing workshops delivered by qualified coaches and highly experienced coxes on:

  • steering the bumps, side by side regattas, multi-lane races and on the Tideway
  • calls and crew psychology
  • safety
  • boat rigging and maintenance
  • working with coaches and being the in-boat coach

Each cox given a crew for the Town Bumps to practice their skills

Places are limited and anyone interested should get in touch with eventsccrc@gmail.com by 29 June with a brief description of their coxing background and goals.  Successful applicants will hear by 1 July.
At the end coxes should be able to return to their college knowing that they have significantly increased their skill are “bumps ready” for the 2022 Lent and May Bumps.
