Boats

Caius are fortunate to have the best selection of eights of any Cambridge club, thanks mainly to generous benefactors.

Men’s Side

  • The Men’s First Boat rows the Jack McDonald (pictured below), a 2010 wing-rigged Empacher, a generous donation from the club’s president Martin Wade.
  • The Men’s Second Boat rows the John Barabino, a wing-rigged Vespoli.
  • The Tony Baker, a Janousek Eight named after our long-serving Caian hero boatman is used by the lower boats.

Women’s Side

  • The Women’s First Boat rows the Jimmy Altham (pictured below, about to bump up into headship!), named after our current Senior Treasurer and long-time alumnus, an Empacher.
  • The Women’s Second Boat rows the Maggie Burgess, a wing-rigged Vespoli.

Other Boats

There are a few other Eights that are not used exclusively by either side:

  • The Neil McKendrick
  • Alice Cheng
  • John Lehman

We also have a handful of smaller boats, used for technical sessions or for small boats regattas:

  • Three IVs, including a new Empacher IV bought in 2017 (as yet unnamed)
  • Four pairs/doubles: two Wintechs, a Swift, and a Carl Douglas double
  • Two single sculls
