This page gives updates on what our novice crews have been up to so far so you can keep track of the fantastic progress they are making and their race results.
MECBC is one of the friendliest boat clubs on the river, and our members have the flexibility to participate as much or as little as they like. Most members join us having never rowed (or seen a rowing boat!) before, and many continue to train with the club throughout their time at Cambridge – often making it into our top crew (W1) or even rowing for the university. Don’t worry if you don’t want to commit to frequent, intense training sessions though – we also have more relaxed crews who only train once or twice a week. MECBC also loves a good social – for example we have ‘swaps’ with other crews, which are a great chance to sample other colleges’ food and meet a few guys!
If you would like to novice row or cox, we would love you to join us – please get in touch with one of our Lower Boat Captains. Under the “For Novices” tab above, there is information on how to find the boat house and some tips – make sure you have a look before your first outing!
