The Cambridge Boat Club will be hosting a Summer Junior Rowing program again in 2014. The Program is designed to introduce high school boys and girls to the fundamentals and joys of sculling. Emphasis will be placed on water-safety, proper boat handling, the development of a smooth and efficient stroke, the elements of good physical conditioning and teamwork. This is a non-competitive program for both experienced rowers and true novices and is open to the children of both CBC members and non-members.
CBC has a very active rowing side with club members competing at Regattas around the world each year.
While some members have competed at Olympic and World Championships, and continue to compete successfully at International Masters Regattas, others are content to just get out on the river and enjoy the serenity of the Charles. In other words we have a wide range of skills, abilities and motivations.
The club is strongest in Masters events, but also holds learn to row sessions during the summer for younger members and newer rowers. The clubhouse is also home to the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School rowing program.
Our well maintained fleet of racing boats includes singles, doubles, pairs, fours, quads and an eight, in a variety of weight ranges. The club has several very stable singles for members who are just starting to scull.
For those who haven't rowed on the Charles before, the river offers a 16 mile stretch from the dam by the Museum of Science in Boston all the way up to Watertown Square. CBC is ideally situated about half way along this stretch, so members can choose to go either upstream or downstream depending on their preference and the conditions.

The third annual CBC Invitational Regatta held on Saturday, July 16th in the words of many of the competitors, “Couldn’t have been better.” And indeed it was a great day on and off the water for the nine teams that came from as far away as Pittsburg and as near as CRI and Union Boat Club.
