Rowing for Clare
Rowing is a great way to make new friends at Clare, as well as to improve your fitness amidst your work. If you are new to the sport, it’s possible to "novice", both as a rower and as a cox, at the beginning of the Michaelmas and Easter terms, although rowers with basic previous experience are welcome to join at the beginning of the Lent term as well. Rowing is free for everyone at Clare and you don't need to have any rowing or sports experience at all!
Learn to cox
While shouting through a headset is not an activity typically associated with rowing, coxing is an integral part of rowing, and crucial for the success of a crew.
The cox is in charge of steering, and gives verbal instructions through a microphone.
At Clare, we have had a history of great coxes that have experienced success at a college and a university level, and we would like to continue this going forward. We welcome anyone who wants to try coxing, and ensure coxes at Clare get support and coaching going forwards.
