2016 Henley Reception
Tickets for our 2016 Henley Reception are now on sale and can be bought via the link below. This years event will be held on Saturday the 2nd of July, starting from 6pm and it promises to be the biggest it has ever been. Food and drinks for the whole evening are included in the price and it will be a great chance to catch up and meet both current members and past members alike. The presidential handover will take place as well as the unveiling of the new committee for the 2016/2017 season. It would be great to see as many of you there as possible.
Welcome to Edinburgh University Boat Club, one of the largest and most successful boat clubs in Scotland and the UK
EUBC is one of the oldest and largest sports clubs within the University of Edinburgh. The aim of our club is to promote the sport of rowing at the university, with the ultimate goal of allowing all club members to not only enjoy participating in the world’s oldest varsity sport, but to also be successful in competition at local, national and international levels.
The Boat Club has been a significant stepping stone to high international honours for many – Edinburgh rowers frequently represent Scotland at the Home International Regatta and former members have gone on to record success at World Championship and Olympic regattas, including Polly Swann and Katherine Grainger.
Membership not only gives students all the tools necessary for success on the water – from high quality equipment to dedicated coaches and training programmes – but also a lively calendar of social events throughout the year which gives our club a tightly-knit family feel, unusual in clubs of comparative size.
Former members frequently point to rowing at Edinburgh as one of the highlights of their time as a student. EUBC has, for over a century, provided something unique in student sport; a genuine opportunity to both follow a path all the way to the pinnacles of sporting achievement and also to become involved in one of the most exciting and friendly clubs at Edinburgh University.
