Rowing

Boat Club Contacts: Taine Ranaghan: boatclub-captain@murrayedwards.cam.ac.uk.

Rowing is a great way to get to know people in College and show some Medwards pride. Early outings may not sound appealing but one of the most beautiful sites to behold in Cambridge is to see the morning mist roll across Midsummer commons as you head out into the countryside. We welcome any standard and have many novice teams for beginners!

Further information about rowing for Murray Edwards can be found on the Murray Edwards College Boat Club website.

Rugby Club (Combined with Sidney Sussex and Girton)
