Upcoming Events


16th September

If you have previous rowing experience and you would like to join us for our pre-season, please contact the senior captains from the committee page.

Give It a Go!

5th & 6th October

If you are not yet sure whether you’d like to join us for the season, this is your chance to try it out and see how you like it! Join us at our boathouse in Chiswick: there will be a BBQ, informational talks, a rowing machine introduction, and, finally, the chance to have a row out on the mighty Thames.

Boat Ball


Rowers look good in lycra but we look even better in black tie! Head along to our annual Boat Ball on the Thames and experience the water with a glass in your hand instead of an oar.

Cambridge Head

16th November

You’ve been training with your squads so this is your time to show other clubs what you’re made of. Cambridge Head is a slightly shorter race and a very relaxed vibe so it makes a perfect first race for novices and a good chance to brush the holiday cobwebs off for our senior squads. Whatever the outcomes for each squad expect to be headed to Mully’s for post-race drinks and karaoke!



Help to raise money for the club and for a charity we will select at our annual 48 Hour Row-a-Thon. Sign up for your slots and take over the rowing machines in Covent Garden to tally up the miles!

Social Tour


At UCL Boat Club we work hard and party hard but never is that concept more true than on our annual social tour.

Christmas Dinner


Feel festive and full at our annual Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings! Pull your cracker, tell the horrendous joke and don your paper crown ready to hit the dance floor. Celebrate all that you’ve accomplished in your first term and start looking forward to Term 2 and all the excitements it will bring.

Pudding Races

14th December

There’s nothing that says merry quite like animal onesies on the tideway! Bring out the Christmas jumpers that have been sitting in the bottom of your wardrobe, hunt down that onesie you bought for fancy dress 3 years ago and understand the reasoning behind the lycra as your oar handle gets caught for the 3rd time in your furry kangaroo pouch (not a euphemism!). Celebrate Christmas in UCLBC style; with alcohol, food and (controlled?) chaos!
