Cambridge University Women's Boat Club

 
 

CUWBC was formed in 1941 following many years when Newnham College had been the only College to support women's rowing. In 1940 the students of Newnham were joined by athletes from Girton. CUWBC first competed as a club against their Oxford counterparts in the 1941 Women's Boat Race.

The club is now responsible for selecting and training the Blue Boat crew who will contest The Newton Women's Boat Race and the 2nd crew known as Blondie who will contest the Women's Reserve race. Both Races will take place on The Championship Course.
