|Welcome to the Christ's College Boat Club (CCBC) website. In 1830, the Boat Club was founded, at which time only a few of the Colleges had clubs. In 1887 the Boathouse was built in its present position.|

We are delighted to announce that the College Council has agreed to provide £350,000 of matching funding, pound for pound, for new pledges to the boathouse redevelopment made after 1st august 2014. When reached, the combined total of £700,000 in additional funds should enable us to start work on Phase One, which is the largest phase of the project. The College Council has reaffirmed its support for the redevelopment and its appreciation of all the work that the steering committee has done to get the project this far.
In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One which occurs this year, alumnus Simon Martin (m. 2006) has compiled a list of all boat club members who saw action during that conflict. The names of those who died during the war are accompanied by a short biography, including details of their rowing exploits. The full document can be downloaded as a pdf file by clicking the link below.

Just one crew racing the GoR this year, and the first ever race for the newly formed Christ's Hippolytans' boat, racing as W3. The crew beat off stiff competition to earn their place in the W4 division.
Just one crew racing this weekend: M1 are competing in Nine's Regatta. Another side-by-side race to give some good mental prep for bumps. The first race is at 13.30
This weekend M1 took a trip away to Nottingham to compete in Notts City Regatta. The crew split in two to race the IM3 4+ and Nov. 4+ in the morning, then joined back together for the IM3 8+ in the afternoon. All three crews had some good races with both 4s making it to their respective finals, and the 8 only narrowly missing out on qualifying. The regatta gave the crew good racing experience in preparation for May Bumps, and the glorious weather all day taught everyone a valuable lesson on the importance of wearing sun cream.
Two crews raced this weekend in Champs 8s Head: W1 and R1, our rugby boat. R1 will be racing as M3 in bumps. Both crews put in strong performances, and gained more preparation for the looming May Bumps.
The boat club committee for 2014-15 was elected at the club AGM on Saturday 3rd May. Congratulations to the newly elected members of the committee and the best of luck to them for when they officially take up their positions on 6th July.
