Welcome from the OULRC president

Welcome to the official website of the Oxford University Lightweight Rowing Club. It is my honour to be able to introduce myself as President of OULRC for the 2016/2017 season. We hope this website will give you some insight into the activities of our club and life as a squad member, as well as convey our excitement concerning the opportunities and challenges that the coming year is sure to present.

This year we are continuing out focus on a full season and will be targeting BUCS as well as the Boat Race. Our preparation for the 2018 Boat Race begins in ernest on September 11th and we look forward to welcoming new members into our Squad.

I can assure you that trialling with OULRC is a uniquely rewarding experience, and the success of our athletes is testament to their dedication and motivation. We are always keen to hear from prospective triallists; if you have any questions about joining OULRC you can find more information in our "Trialling" section of this website. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at president.oulrc@gmail.com

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the OULRC Alumni for their tremendous support. The Old Members Assiciation helps to finance both the ongoing season and investments such as boat purchases. If you would like to join or donate to our Trust Fund, you can find more information in the "Alumni" section of this website.

George Spill, President, 2017-18.
