OULRC was founded in 1975. The club trains and selects two lightweight men’s crews, the Blue Boat and the reserves, Nephthys, to race in the annual Lightweight Boat Races against Cambridge.

The club depends on the generosity of donors to ensure that Oxford students have the opportunity to compete in the Lightweight Boat Races alongside studying at one of the world’s top universities.

Over the years, donations have provided boats, buildings (most notably the Iffley Road gym and tank, and the Fleming Boathouse at Wallingford) together with funding for training camps and coaches.

Please visit the Club’s website for more information on their Boat Fund web page.

We are so grateful to all our supporters and we welcome donations at all levels.
