Why join QMULBC?

Rowing is THE university sport. Whether its the thrill of racing at BUCS, the prestige of going to Henley, rowing recreationally, or to be involved in a thriving social environment, then QMULBC is perfect for individuals of all skills and fitness types to fulfil the ultimate university experience. Check out our training and social pages for more guidance.



How to sign up to QMULBC

If you didn’t sign up to rowing at Fresher’s Fair and consequently make it to our ‘taster’ sessions, then don’t panic, because there are opportunities to join the club throughout the year. College and Club alumni are encouraged to join Drapers RC. Contact the Club Secretary for more details about how you can join rowing and be a part of QMULBC.

Don’t fancy rowing, how about coxing?

The role of a coxswain within a crew is to:

  • Ensure the safety of the boat and rowers on the water through reliable steering
  • Command the actions of the boat
  • Provide motivation and encouragement to the crew
  • Assess situations and make any necessary tactical decisions
  • Direct the team and organise outings
  • Be responsible for the boat

Even though coxes do not tend to row competitively they are a fundamental feature of the team and even share any awards and any achievements of the crew. The opportunity to row is always available and many do.


So thats a NO to rowing and a NO to coxing. Why not

come along to our Social Events?

Rowing can also be a recreational sport and we appreciate that university is a time for fun! Every year QMULBC welcomes a number of members who enjoy the social side of university sport. We encourage friends of rowers to come to our legendary social events, especially the monthly ‘Hail Mary’ sports night in Drapers. Check out our social events page for more information.
