Darwin College Boat Club is starting our campaign of recruiting new rowers for the 2014/2015 academic year!
You don’t have to be athletic or have rowed previously to be a member, as the Captains will match your training schedule to the sporting ability and time availability. Even if you aren’t interested in the training, you can still make an absolutely vital contribution to the club as a coxswain. The cox steers the boat, motivates the crew and expects the rowers to follow his or her commands absolutely!
With a strong progression over the last years, the club is one of the most successful graduate rowing clubs in Cambridge. Darwin rowers train throughout the academic year and participate in numerous races each term. The main events however are Lent bumps (in March), and May bumps (in June). In 2014, Darwin was the third most successful college overall, with two crews winning blades! Putting rowing aside, we regularly get together as a club for garden parties, BBQ’s, pub drinking sessions, fundraising events and generally ‘boatie’ fun laughter and banter to re-live the moments of success, bad-luck and amusing encounters.
SIGN UP NOW!
If you are eager to join our rowing crew either as a rower, coach, or cox, sign up using our online sign up form.
Please feel free to contact the women’s captain Ariana Phillips (Darwin.email@example.com) and the men’s captain Laurens Geffert (Darwin.firstname.lastname@example.org). Talk to us at the bar, find us at the Darwin society fair on the 6th of October, and don’t miss our novice taster day on the 18th of October!
Dates to keep in mind:
October 6 – Darwin Societies Fair - come down to the Darwin Common Room to meet us and talk to us in person about what rowing is all about!
October 18 – Novice Taster Day – come down to the boat house to try out rowing for the first time! Whether you’re curious, interested, or simply wanna do it out of banter, do come join!
There are also positions available on our DCBC Committee, do contact us for more information!
Looking forward to hearing from you! :)
