Want to get involved with rowing? You're in the right place!
Whether you've just arriving at Caius or are a current student wanting in on the action, this is the page for you. At Caius almost half of the freshers intake try out rowing - whether it's to keep fit, be involved with the College's biggest, most active and most successful sports club or simply to meet loads of people and enjoy the social side.
In freshers' week, there will be a stall at the college freshers' fair for you to talk to some current rowers and sign up. There'll also be an 'open boathouse' at some time in the week too, where you can check out our facilities and maybe get on the water for the first time.
Don't worry if you haven't set foot in a boat before. Very few people arrive with prior experience and Michaelmas Term is the time that the majority of people learn to row. We'll start off the term "tubbing" in a small, virtually unsinkable, two person boat and then quickly move into the VIIIs. The aim is to compete against all the other novice College crews in the Fairbairn Cup at the end of term.
Alternatively, you can learn to cox - a rewarding, responsible position (All the benefits of rowing but with none of the hard work!).
If you have rowed/coxed before, then email the men's or women's captains, whose emails can be found on the committee page. Every year many experienced rowers join Caius and enjoy becoming part of our large squad system.
