Manchester University Boat Club

About us

Manchester University boat club was founded in 1932 and has since grown into a thriving club filled with novice and senior members.

Every year we take on over 100 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, Henley Women’s Regatta & Henley Royal Regatta.

We have our own boathouse on the Bridgewater canal along with an extensive fleet of racing shells.
