Linacre College Boat Club



Greetings to freshers at Linacre, Nuffield, and Reuben! 

 Welcome to Oxford! We hope you are as excited to be here as we are to have you soon row with us! Fortunately, we are allowed to take you out in our beloved 8s, so you can give it a try - come to our first Rowing Taster Sessions and BBQ at our boathouse during Freshers’ Week on Saturday, October 9th, 2021 at noon!

The boat club comprises the waterborne might of the college, and represents Linacre at the major rowing competitions in Oxford and further afield. Made up of students from Linacre and Nuffield colleges, the club fields several boats and takes prospective coxes and rowers of all abilities, from experienced to complete novice. As one of the longest and most Oxford of sporting traditions, rowing has a hallowed place in college life, and no time at the university is complete without at least dipping an oar into the water. Beware, it can be addictive! The club emphasises social as well as professional  development,  and is a great way to make lasting friends while keeping fit.
