Welcome to the official website of St Hugh's Boat Club!
SHBC is a boat club for members of St Hugh's College, Oxford, with a membership of approximately 65 people, all undertaking undergraduate or postgraduate courses at the University of Oxford. Almost all of our rowing is done in eights, with all members able to enter into two bumps racing competitions per year, alongside smaller side-by-side and time trial races whenever the opportunity arrives. Recognised as one of the most enthusiastic boat clubs in the collegiate rowing community, we row because we love it, and enjoyment is our only prerequisite for success.
Rowing Glossary - If you're new to rowing this is a fantastic glossary of rowing terms. It covers pretty much everything you need to know or may be interested in as a novice, so if there's anything you're unsure of, take a look.
The Committee - A list of committee members can be found here. Do feel free to contact anyone with any questions you may have, they're here to help, after all.
Alumni - If you are an Alumnus take a look at our newsletters to get up to speed on what's been happening recently. There is also information on our alumni society (FOSH), as well as information on how to donate to SHBC.
7/12/2014 And the women power to another stunning victory! Congratulations to the W4+ who took part in Wallingford Heads. They set a very respectable time and came 3rd in their division. There's no stopping these ladies!
5/12/2014 All that training is clearly paying off! The women's squad were racing today at the Fairbairn Cup in Cambridge and battled the windy 4.4km stretch to achieve an impressive 10th place. Well done the women!
29/11/2014 Another successful Christ Church Regatta and a chance to celebrate the might of SHBC with the traditional curry and bop combo. Congratulations to all the novice crews that entered - we are so proud of you!
