St Anne’s M1 VIII.

Rowing is THE sport closest to many St Anne’s students’ hearts. You only have to see the Boat Race to understand how big rowing is at Oxford, and college level rowing is a great way to get involved. Whether you’re chasing blades or just looking for a challenging workout in a team setting, the numerous college crews competing at termly regattas can cater for all abilities. 

The intensity of land-training and outings is also matched by the intensity of the Boat Club’s socialising. Crew dates for both Men’s and Women’s crews are a great way to meet people at other colleges, and regular team curries and SABC dinners are another highlight of the college social calendar. 

If exercising is not really your thing, you can always try your hand at coxing. The Boat Club is always on the lookout for these essential members of the crew, so if you’re interested feel free to get in touch and give it a go. No experience is required; you just need an authoritative stance and a loud voice!

Get involved! The Boat Club will be running a stall at the St Anne’s freshers fair and will hold a taster session by the Isis in Freshers’ Week. Feel free to get in touch in the meantime with any questions:
