Congratulations to the Cantabs A crew who won the Provincial Pennant at the Women’s Eights Head of the River!

The crew raced hard in tough conditions, to finish 27th overall and the fastest Provincial crew by 15 seconds. This win marks the 3rd time Cantabs have won the pennant in the last 5 races.

The Provincial Pennant is awarded to the fastest club crew from a club based outside of the M25 and not on the River Thames.

Recent News [postlist 2] Welcome to the Cantabs website! Cantabs is one of the largest and most successful town rowing clubs in Cambridge. We welcome rowers, scullers and coxes of all abilities and ages. We run regular Learn to Row courses for juniors and adults. More experienced rowers should find a crew that meets their aspirations, whether they are looking to compete in national – and occasionally international – competitions, enjoy recreational rowing on the Cam, or something in between. Coaches are always welcome to strengthen our existing volunteer teams and the club offers support for coaches to achieve nationally recognised qualifications.Coxes are also very welcome. Inexperienced coxes will receive support and coaching and are unlikely to be short of crews to practise with! If you’d like to get in touch with the club, please use the button below.

More about the club
Cantabrigian Rowing Club is based in Cambridge, England. It started in 1950 as a club for the pupils and old boys of the Cambridgeshire High School for Boys (now the Hills Road Sixth Form College). In the 1960’s Cantabrigian, known locally as ‘Cantabs’, became an open club and has been accepting general membership ever since. The club is a member of the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association (the CRA), and we are based at our own Boat House (with a weights room, ergo room and other facilities) off St. Andrew’s Road, Chesterton, Cambridge. We have exciting plans to redevelop our Boat House and regular updates to progress will be available on this site from time to time. We also rent facilities at the CRA boathouse off Kimberley Road, Cambridge, UK.

The club is affiliated to British Rowing, the umbrella body which administers the sport in the UK. The club aims to promote rowing across the entire range of age and ability, and to provide the coaching and equipment to take rowing to a competitive level. In particular, the club offers an opportunity for all club members to participate in the annual CRA Bumping Races in late July, in which the men are Head of the River, and the women have two crews in the top ten. We have strong connections with local schools, providing rowing classes as part of the syllabus and offer pupils the opportunity to row outside of school hours. In 2001, Cantabs became a Project Oarsome club, cementing its links with local schools and gaining a substantial award of junior training equipment from British Rowing.

Please feel free to take a look round our site, although some areas are restricted to club members. If you are ready to join, please visit How to Join Us, under the Visitors menu.
