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.

Involvement with town clubs

Captains voted on the 19th April 2010 to change the rules on involvement with town clubs as follows:

The rule now gives a clear line:

On a term by term basis, each person should either only row during CUCBC hours (whether that be weekend hours, evening hours, flag, etc), or be not eligible for CUCBC competitions in that term.

(This may not be the exact wording used for the handbook, but this is the meaning intended.)

Note that this (by implication) allows:
- Training with a town club as your primary club
- Racing with a town club
... as long as all use of the River Cam is within CUCBC hours.

Swan Attacks / Sewage

There have been a number of recent attacks from the swan know as Mr Asbo or Stalin at the bottom of the Reach and into Plough Reach. There are moves afoot to have him relocated, however in the mean time please ensure that all crews take care that they don't antagonise him, even if it means stopping in good time and manoeuvring round him. All coaches should keep a wary eye open for him and get their crew to react accordingly.

It was noted at the recent Moorings Meeting that there have been a number of occasions when the sewage system at the Travellers' camp has overflowed into the small drainage ditches, which eventually connect to the Cam in and around Plough Reach. Although the risks are considered low we are coming up to the time when the flow in the Cam starts to slow and so the water changeover is reduced. I will ask you all to stress to your crews that they clean and cover any open cuts and thoroughly wash their hands after every outing. They must also ensure that water bottles and food are protected if they are in the bottom of the boat, in a plastic bag for example, to prevent the river water contamination.

Boat Races 2010

Congratulations to the Cambridge Blue Boat for their victory over Oxford at The Boat Race on Saturday 3rd April 2010. Congratulations also to Goldie, the Cambridge reserve boat, for defeating Isis.

On Sunday 28th March, the Henley Boat Races took place. Congratulations to CULRC for winning their race against OULRC. CUWBC were unfortunately not so lucky this year, losing to stronger Oxford crews in all of their races.
