Boathouse

The Boathouse is located a five-minute cycle away from College, on Cutter Ferry Lane. Our Boathouse is one of the largest on the river, and has its own gym & changing facilities.

The Emmanuel Boat Club (EBC) is very successful, and is an active part of the College community, both sporting and socially. Rowing is also a symbolic part of Cambridge life! The Club welcomes novice rowers, through to those representing the University Blue Boats.

During the Lent & Easter terms, the intercollegiate 'Bumps' competitions take place and the College regularly boat at least four Men's & Women's crews. EBC remains very competitive within the University, and are often high-ranking on the river.

The Boathouse is available for use by all students and Fellows. We have 8 VIII boats, 4 IV boats, a Men's Double Scull & 3 Sculls, and the gym is fully equipped with weights & 8 'erg' machines. We also rack boats for Hughes Hall College and Anglia Ruskin University.
