Single Sculling

The club caters from junior and beginner scullers through to those racing at Scullers Head, Henley Women’s and Henley Royal Regattas.

In recent years, Cantabs scullers have reached the finals of the Diamonds at Henley on two occasions, won at Wallingford and Met Regattas, medalled at British and World Masters and won pennants at the Scullers’ Head on the Tideway.

Our youngest juniors train exclusively in sculling boats. As they get older, many will start to mix in sweep rowing. Participants on the club’s popular Learn to Row Courses can expect to spend several sessions in sculling boats as they provide an excellent way to learn how a boat responds to the actions of the rower. Many other club members who spend the majority of their time in sweep boats also enjoy training, and in some cases competing, in sculls too.

The club has a number of beginners’ sculling boats which are stable, sturdy and ideal for those getting starting out in sculling, either individually or in pairs. The Men’s or Women’s Captains can provide guidance and will give you permission to use a suitable boat.

Scullers are welcome to join other squads for elements of training such as weights or ergs, where space permits.
