Welcome to the Peterhouse Boat Club Website
Welcome to the Peterhouse Boat Club website. Founded in 1828, the Peterhouse Boat Club is the rowing and sculling club for members of Peterhouse that strive to improve the club's standing in the Lent and May Bumps as well as other competitions on the Cam and further afield. We are very successful, with our First Men's crew 7th in Lent Bumps and our First Women in the top division in both Lent and May.
This website aims to provide infomation about the club, from race results, history and the committee as well as an easy to use system for booking boats or ergs.

Head Of The Cam 2013 - M1On the morning, Andrei realised he was ill – although still managed to complete the warm up – so a lightweight from Christ’s called John Beckett came in, probably slowing the boat down and definitely reducing our singing ability (only joking, thanks John!)
Just before setting off, the stroke man decided he’d had enough and ran off into the bushes, and was only coaxed out by the promise of all the Dojo’s he could eat.
We started really strong, which may have had something to do with the Oly ...
Small Boats Regatta 2013 - K. Ashley"I started sculling as an excuse to get out of the library over Easter- five weeks later my training diary was full and I'd managed to only go swimming once- things were getting serious! The long ergs and gym sessions were probably more beneficial to the upcoming 2k test though as I was only entered in the novice Maiden Sculls category- a short dash down the reach in a straight (ish) line. Nevertheless I was feeling confident on the start line- the conditions were good and the reach was the flat ...
Small Boats Regatta 2013 - A. LebedDay One
Quarter final race against Trinity Hall.
You could tell it was a novice sculls race when everybody got to the top of the reach and starting piling up on each other as the wind blew us into the bank. After disentangling myself from the mess of blades and bow-balls, I lined up with my competitor to race. The wind wasn’t all that weak, which made the start shaky for both of us. 10-20 strokes in however, I managed to relax and find a rhythm, letting the hands get lower for a better flow on ...
Cross Keys BCWe're looking for Peterhouse alumni (male AND female) to come back to row as Cross Keys in the Fairbairns this year! Fairbairns takes place on 30th November this year - and what better way to justify all the food and drink at Boat Club Dinner afterwards than racing on the Cam?! Many people will not have rowed for a fair while, so no one expects fitness levels to be great! But it has been great fun in the past, and the riverside is as picturesque as ever.
Email the Development Officer or the Captain of Boats if you're interested ASAP with your preferred rowing side, or whether you're able to cox. [see the committee page for contact details]. Alternatively, if you have his contact details, you can contact David Sawtell who is organising the Cross Keys crews this year.
