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.
11/04/2015 A brilliant performance from all the Oxford crews racing on the tideway. I think they call that a clean sweep! Congratulations to the victorious crews
09/03/2015 Ladies and Gentlemen, say hello to your new captains! Congratulations to Jamie Gardiner and Sam Johansen, and Nikki Ealey and Emma Sadler who have been elected as men's and women's captains respectively. Our thanks go to Tom Bladon and Pippa Keane who will be stepping down from the roles
07/03/2015 What a superb evening at Torpids Roast. Hosted this year at the Department of Continuing Education, SHBC enjoyed a delicious meal followed by the traditional bop back in college. Thank you to Jamie Gardiner (social sec) for organising it
07/03/2015 The results ARE IN!:

03/03/2015 Following weeks of brutally cold mornings and equally hard work, 7th week's most magical adventure is finally here! With four crews entered, SHBC is ready to take on the Isis. Watch this space for updates on race times and results! #SHBC2015
