Founded in 1966, we are one of UEA’s oldest sports teams. We have since grown to become some of the university’s most prominent and dedicated athletes. Some of our rowers already had a strong rowing background, whilst others picked up an oar for the first time when they joined us – whatever your current ability, we will maximize your potential.

2017/2018 is set to be our best season yet

With an expanding number of rowers, coaches and boats in our fleet, there has never been a better time to join us. We train on the River Yare, as well as having access to training and lounge facilities at the Whitlingham Boathouses.

Novices will benefit from our Learn To Row program, which will take you from compete beginners to your first race in little over a month.

More experienced rowers will be interested in the stated aims of our Captains, who are aiming to place high at BUCS events, as well as qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta.

Sports Fayre & Taster DaySports Fayre

If you want to see our facilities for yourself before joining, you should find our stall at the 2017 Sports Fayre – 27th September, 11:00-16:00 – and sign up for our Taster Day. You will get the chance to row in one of our 8+ boats, as well as taking our rowing machines for a spin.

The date of our Taster Day is yet to be finalised – to be among the first to find out the confirmed date, be sure to like and follow our fresher’s page on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/UEABCfreshers2017/
