KATE ADAMS

President

Hello, I’m Kate, a fourth-year mathematician and this year’s TCBC President. I started rowing in my first year here at Trinity, and have never looked back! Despite two challenging years, with limited water time due to high water levels and the pandemic, TCBC saw great results in our recent bumps racing campaign, Summer Torpids. I am excited to work with this year’s committee to build upon this success! Hopefully this year will see a return to ‘normal’ training, but regardless, I have no doubt that our novice and senior rowers alike will continue to go from strength to strength. If you have any questions about rowing with TCBC, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

JAN BARRACLOUGH

Men's Captain

Hi, I’m Jan and I’ll be your men’s captain for the 2021/22 season. Like a lot of the club this year, I can’t wait to get involved with another exciting year of college rowing. I’ve been in the sport for a fair while now, and after a year at TCBC I would say it’s a good laugh and a great chance to get rowing experience in a competitive environment, as well as being a solid crowd for socials. For beginners and experienced athletes alike, TCBC is aiming to develop crews of varying abilities and commitment levels this year, and if last year is anything to go off, the College Boat Club was one of the biggest and most active communities within college. 

If you’re keen to be a part of the club this year, you’ll probably see me around the place with a bad sunburn. Me or vice-captain Oli Clement will be happy to answer any questions you have, or have a chat about rowing. 

See you at the river!

CAITLIN PANG

Women's Co-Captain

Hi everyone! I'm Caity, a second-year mathematician, and this year I'm TCBC women's captain with Rose. I came to Trinity with no rowing experience, but can't wait to work with both the seniors and the novices in the coming year to both improve as a rower and be part of this year's committee - I'm so excited for the coming year with the TCBC community!

ZAC RAWLINSON

Treasurer

Hi I’m Zac, a third-year Biochemist and treasurer of TCBC. I’ve been rowing for the club since my first year, and finally got to race this summer – narrowly missing out on blades! Bumps racing is by far some of the best fun I’ve had at Oxford, and I’m excited for my first (hopefully) uninterrupted year of rowing. As treasurer I’m looking forward to helping keep TCBC going for another successful year, and hopefully help put on some fun events for the TCBC community, on top of racing and training.

HARRY WALTON

Secretary

Hello! I’m Harry, a second year biochemist, and I’ll be the TCBC Secretary for the 2021-22 season. While I joined the club at the start of my first year in 2020, I didn’t get the chance to row until Trinity term 2021, so while I’ll still be joining the novices this year, I will also be organising stash, arranging various dinners throughout the year, keeping up social media activity, and communicating executive committee decisions to the rest of the club. I’m looking forward to starting the less-restricted rowing season with everyone, so if you have any questions about rowing or the club, (or get any good photos worth sharing) please get in touch. See you on the water!

ALANNAH BURDESS

Captain of Coxes & Men's Social Sec

Hi, my name is Alannah and I’ll be Captain of Coxes and Men’s Social Secretary this year! I’m in my third year studying Classics and pretty much everything I know about coxing I learnt at TCBC, having joined as a novice cox in my first year. I’m very grateful for the very supportive community of coxes at TCBC and I’m keen to continue that by welcoming and supporting new coxes, whether they’re seasoned pros or new to the sport like I was. As for the social side of things, I’ll be getting my party planning hat on. Those 6am starts are much more bearable when you know they come with a few crewdates throughout the term and social are a key part of crew bonding. I was lucky to be an honorary man last year as Co-Captain of the men’s side and we even managed to squeeze in a few socials despite Covid. Though arguably a good crewdate can’t be beaten, I’m also hoping to diversify our social calendar with pizza nights and mini-golf. Whatever the next year throws at us, where there’s a will, there’s a way!

HOLLY GARDNER

Women's Social Sec

Hiya! I’m Holly, a third-year English student, and I’m the Women’s Social Sec for 2021-22. I think that one of the most important parts of TCBC rowing is the social side (especially crewdates), building team spirit and making new friends throughout all the years in college. I can’t wait to arrange some fun post-COVID events for the girls this year so, watch this space! If you have any questions/requests, don’t fail to pop me a message.
