Take a look at our Facebook and Instagram for more information about UEABC:


Founded in 1963, The University of East Anglia Boat Club stands as a competitive rowing club, training and competing throughout the year, nationwide.

By following the motto of, 'Fortune Favours the Brave' our crews have seen recent successes winning pots and multiple BUCS medals. We continue to develop and evolve the club to strive for larger titles. Our beginner programs consistently place in the 6 top university beginner crews. 

The majority of training takes part at the Whitlingham Boathouse, which not only houses our extensive fleet of Hudson and Fillipi boats, but also provides a rowing-focused gym space for strength and conditioning, and ergo sessions.

This Boathouse sits alongside the River Yare, a wide 15km stretch of river that allows for varied training including side-by-side 8s and frequent races.

UEABC invites all levels of abilities from complete beginners to intermediate athletes, rowers, and coxswains. Our head of rowing has 16 years of experience coaching sweeping and sculling in a variety of boats ranging from singles to eights.

Additional Cost of Sport Ranges

The additional cost of sport project, which was created by the Students’ Union, alongside uea+sport, is designed to give prospective members information on the range of costs they may face in joining their chosen sport.

This range should be taken as guidance. For compulsory costs, this price includes uea+sport membership which is £55, and you only need to pay once to join all of our clubs.

When considering additional costs, some clubs may have none and others may have further costs. This is often dependent on the level of competitiveness for the sport you get involved in, and so recreational or socially playing may be cheaper. You may also have equipment which can be used between multiple sports, for example shoes or gum shields.

For any questions, please ask the sport club for specific further information, or for further information on the project.

Many thanks,
