Manchester University boat club was founded in 1932 and has since grown into a thriving club filled with novice and senior members. Each year we take on 300+ members, all of whom are given the opportunities to train at our facilities and go onto compete in events such as BUCS, Head of the River, Women's Head of the River, Women's Henley & Henley Royal Regatta.
