Trinity College Boat Club, Oxford was founded in 1837 and was one of the first few colleges to begin rowing on the River Isis. It is said that the first members of the club would pay for the boats themselves and had levied all the members of the College to pay as it would bring honour for the College generally. This honour was brought when Trinity gained Summer Eight's Headship in 1861.
Since then the sport has grown and the Boat Club continues to be an invaluable part of college life. With members joining the club with varying levels of experience. Our Alumni include Henley Royal Regatta winners, World Championship Medalists and Olympic Medalists.
Training takes place daily and our coaches cover for all levels of experience and any time constraints that an athlete may have. With our Men's and Women's 1st Crews predominantly training up at Godstow, one of the best stretches of river in the local area, our Second crews and Novices train on the Isis for the majority of the year.
The main bulk of this training focuses around the Bumps racing: Eights and Torpids, but the club also races at other events, including the Head of the River Race and local races in the area. Allowing crews to gain experience off the Isis.
But it's not all about the training, the club frequently hosts social events each term. The highlight of each term being the Boat Club Dinners. However, the club has hosts socials with other clubs throughout the year which form an inequitable part of crew bonding and the experience of Trinity College Boat Club.
