Welcome to the Boat Club!
RVCBC is the largest mixed society at the RVC. Whether you have rowed at school or you have never held an oar, we look forward to welcoming you to the family! Our wonderful novice captains, Chloe and Toby, will provide coaching and support from day one as you learn the ropes, and you can choose to compete throughout the year on the River Thames against the London medical schools (the United Hospitals) and universities from across the UK. Land training is held once or twice per week in the Camden or Hawkshead gym, and water outings are at the University of London Boathouse in Chiswick on Wednesday afternoons and at weekends.
If exercise doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, why not join us as a social member? We are legendary for our Wednesday evening socials, which are the largest and best at the RVC; and our annual tour in January is a highlight of the club calendar, with some recent destinations including Barcelona, Fuerteventura, and Mallorca. Socials with the United Hospitals are also immensely popular, and include a start-of-season pub crawl, Valentines’ Day crew dates, and an annual black-tie dinner.
If you are have already rowed or coxed, you will start training with the senior squads. We are a steadily-growing club with an impressive string of results in intercollegiate and national regattas over the last three years, who are looking to nurture the talent in our men’s and women’s squads.
We also have a small but enthusiastic group of sculling members, and opportunities to get involved with coaching and management are numerous. Get in touch with the senior captains (Georgia and George) to find out how we can support your development.
See you in September!
