Learning to row at Jesus College is something recommended to everyone, whether you’re an undergraduate fresher, a graduate student or halfway through your degree.


JCBC is a large and friendly boat club, where absolutely everyone who wants to row is given the chance, and everyone is valued by the club whatever their level of skill or experience. The sport itself is great; you’ll learn an exciting new skill, make new friends and get a taste of a unique Cambridge tradition as well as keeping fit alongside your academic studies.


Novice term (Michaelmas) involves a wide range of races and competitions against other colleges, which are hugely enjoyable and provide an opportunity to show off your team spirit and college pride, and potentially win a few prizes!


JCBC also has a thriving social side. Ents are frequent and varied, from bar crawls and BBQs to parties (bops) and black tie dinners. There are also joint socials with other boat clubs which enable you to meet people from other colleges. 

Most importantly, the squad spirit within the club is phenomenal; you’ll meet other novices as well as senior rowers, coxes and other members of the club, some of whom may become some of your closest friends at university. Overall, if you want to get involved in one of Cambridge’s greatest sports and join a great social community, give novice rowing with JCBC a try!
