Away Membership

For former juniors, up until age 23

We don’t want to lose touch with our former juniors when they leave Cambridge for University, so we have developed an ‘Away-Student’ membership which welcomes away-students back to the Club during University holidays. We’d also like to welcome other Cambridge scullers who are away during term-time but would like to keep up their sculling during the holidays.

The membership fee of £100 offers you:

  • the use of Club sculling boats – we will advise which would be most suitable for you and when they are available
  • the opportunity to ‘drop in’ on squad sessions
  • access to coaching when available – coaches will charge their own rates
  • support in attending races on behalf of RRBC
  • the opportunity to take part in Bumps – subject to the Bumps eligibility rules
  • access to our ergos
  • training with members of your former sculling squads
  • continuing updates on Rob Roy successes
  • invitations to all Rob Roy racing and social events

There are several local races which take place during University holidays, for example:


  • Great Ouse Marathon
  • Cambridge Autumn Regatta
  • Cambridge Christmas Head (fancy dress)
  • Bedford IVs and Small Boats
  • Bumps
  • St Neots Regatta
  • Peterborough Summer Regatta
