|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.|
|Below you will find news articles of recent club activity. Follow the links down the right hand sidebar or along the top bar to find more information about the club or use the search.|

Alumni, staff, fellows, students and guests are warmly invited to attend the
Annual Christ's College May Bumps Picnic on Saturday 15 June. The event is
taking place at Osier Holt (First Post Corner) in Fen Ditton to enjoy a
buffet lunch on the final day of racing during this year's May Bumps. This
is one of the best spots on the river to watch every division, having clear
views of First Post Reach and the first two corners (First Post and Grassy).
The pictures for the Blades Drinks Reception are now available. I will add/link-to a brief summary soon!
Don't forget to book your places for a night of rowing nostalgia and history at the Blades Drinks Reception, 8th May at Watermen's Hall - current rowers, former rowers and supporters are all welcome!
They can be booked online on the alumni site or by sending a form to Rebecca at the development office. For more information, links and the form, please visit:
With the all important Easter Term just a week and a half away from starting I thought I might update you all with an idea of the club's plan for the term and what we intend to achieve.
In 1892, on the way down to bumps a Christ's rowing called H. C. L. Lovett was killed by lightning. Needless to say, they continued rowing the next day.

College crews may not row on the River after Lighting Up time, or before Lighting Down, so, like the movie “Night at the Museum”, the Boathouse takes on a new life after dark. Crossing Victoria Bridge, muffled creatures arrive and park bicycles precariously in the passageway. Through uncurtained windows, torches are seen moving around. Blood stirring cries from Womens Captain, Naomi Sharp, mix with blood curdling screams from the “music” system. Land training is in full swing.
A good day of racing and a solid performance by all those who took part. W1 made it to the semifinals and narrowly missed out on a place in the finals. W2 however managed to steal the show and came top in their division.
Another cracking performance by our W1, and a good result!
