Boat Club President – Daniel Jones
Welcome to Stephenson College Boat Club (SCBC)!

The past season has been incredibly successful for the Boat Club in every respect. Not only has membership exceeded previous numbers with 110 people making up the club, there have also been considerable developments in both the recreational and competitive sides. Throughout head season, there were numerous wins for SCBC with standout victories including the Tyne Regatta 8+ and 4-, along with various victories at York Spring Head in the 4+ and 1x divisions. This success was carried through the year into regatta season with a considerable amount of our novice rowers moving to IM3 and senior rowers adding more wins to their existing results. Many memorable days were had including Tees regatta, Hexham regatta and, of course, Durham regatta which marked the close of our season rather fittingly with a Stephenson Crew making it all the way to the prize giving ceremony. The support showed on these days only added to the memories that were made by everyone.
What’s more, this year SCBC was also proud to become the owners of a new boat to add to their current fleet. The Wintech International 4+ was purchased from ex olympian Matt Wells (Director of Rowing at Monkton School in Bath). The purchase was the culmination of weeks of hard work and now many members of the club can enjoy what is our new top boat.
Looking forward to next year, the club hopes to continue its success, developing more crews and competing in more events across the North East. The Boat Club has a definite presence on campus and wants to welcome anybody to come and try the sport, regardless of any past experience. Whether you want to row competitively, recreationally or even just attend land training sessions or socials, there will always be something on offer for you at SCBC.
