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.
22/07/2014 Preparations for Freshers’ Week are under way. The Isis will once again become novice central as taster sessions get underway. Watch this space!
29/06/2014 The annual committee elections have taken place and the new committee have been elected. See the "Meet the Committee" page to see your new committee members. Congratulations to those elected and farewell to those leaving us! It's been a terrifically successful year for SHBC thanks to all your hard work.
21/06/2014 I'm sure many members of SHBC are extremely tired after a successful Summer Solstice outing! Three boats embraced classic Oxford tradition and made the journey down to the Boat House at 3:15am. Why sleep when you can row on the longest day of the year?
· 01/06/2014 The day after Summer VIIIs dinner- a successful night to match a successful VIIIs campaign! Blazers and black ties galore, a fantastic student and alumni turnout celebrated the fact that there was not a spoon in sight for SHBC! With great wine, two types of port and a cheese round can there be a better way to top off a fantastic week?
· 30/06/2014 A brilliant VIIIs campaign all around for SHBC! With two blade winning crews, countless bumps and zero spoons, all the hard work has definitely paid off. Well done to all, here's to more success in the upcoming academic year!
