Men's Rowing

Rob Roy Boat Club Men’s Squad

While Rob Roy has a successful track record in national representation, at the National Championships, Masters’ Championships, the VIIIs Head and HRR, the Men’s Squad is largely a group of experienced and competent scullers of all ages who train hard but need to fit their training round busy work and family schedules and so cannot always commit to crew rowing.

We have a fleet of good quality singles and doubles for use by members who don’t have their own; and we have an off-Cam base outside Ely from where competent independent scullers can achieve high quality long-distance training on the water also used by the Cambridge Boat Race crews and the GB Start programme.

We are building an U23 men’s squad which trains regularly together but also includes provision for competent scullers (including former members of our Junior Squad) who may be away at university or working elsewhere, who want to continue their training in the holidays or at weekends or want to get together for races with other Rob Roy members.

If this sounds like the sort of Club to meet your needs, contact Michael Knapp, our Chairman at

If you are looking to learn to scull from scratch, we suggest you sign up for a Learn to Row course with, our sister organisation which specialises in intensive courses for novices.
