Cambridge University Combined Boat Clubs is the umbrella organisation for student rowing at the University of Cambridge, consisting of the University and College Boat Clubs.

As well as organising the Lent and May Bumps, CUCBC also regulates student clubs' use of the River Cam.

 

Forthcoming River Closures

Weekend Rowing: All crews may boat from 11:00am on both days.

Early Morning Restrictions: All Senior crews may boat at lighting down; crews boating within 15 minutes of lighting down must carry white lights visible through 360o, must row full crew, full slide to Chesterton footbridge, and must not spin before Baitsbite lock. Novice crews may boat from 07:30am.

Evening Hours will be in effect during 17:30-20:00 on weekdays during Easter Full Term for first boat training only. Please see the Evening Rowing page for more information.

Details of forthcoming closures of the river to CUCBC crews are shown below. All are for the river downstream of Chesterton Corner / Green Dragon Footbridge unless stated otherwise.

'Smaller Boats' Regatta June 2021

Instead of the usual 'chasing' format, races were run side-by-side over the Pembroke Regatta course, roughly 1100m from the bottom of the long reach to Peter's Posts. Novice 1x races were run over their usual 500m course.

June Eights' Regatta

A one-off side-by-side Regatta held on the Long reach, to replace the cancelled 2021 May Bumps.

The June Eights Regatta ran from Monday 21st June to Thursday 24th June.

Further information is available on the June Eights' Regatta page.
