A Brief History
Founded in 1963, The University of East Anglia Boat Club stands as a competitive rowing club, training and competing throughout the year, countrywide. The UEABC Coaches and Captains enter both squads into a vast array of races, against both university and local crews.
By following the motto of Fortune Favours the Brave, our crews have seen multiple successes, and we continue to work and evolve the club to strive for larger titles.
The majority of training takes part at the Whitlingham Boathouse, which not only houses our fleet of boats, but also provides a gym space for weight and ergo sessions. This Boathouse sits alongside the Rive Yare, a 15km stretch of river which allows for our rigorous training and frequent races. Being affiliated with this facility has been vital for our numerous successes in previous years as it creates a competitive yet enjoyable environment, with our squads being able to train alongside the likes of Norwich RC.
Our Fleet of boats is to an exceptional standard, and we hope it is yet to grow larger. In total we house 4 8+s and 4 4+s. Our Senior 8+ and 4+ are custom painted Stampflis which are rowed only by experienced athletes. Alongside these we have 6 training sculls which are used in partnership with the Whitlingham Foundation.
