The UEL Boat Club (UELBC) is constantly growing and strives to recruit new members each academic year. The club provides opportunities for all members whether you are a complete beginner, novice, intermediate or high-performance rower.

    UELBC compete and excel in BUCS across a variety of competitions throughout each academic year including; Indoor Championships, Small Boats Head, 4’s & 8’s Head and the Regatta. The continued success and progression of the club was awarded by winning the 2017-18 Most Improved Club and the 2018-19 Club of the Year at the annual Sports Awards.
