Ergs and weights are usually done at the University Sports Centre, a recently built facility. The weights room has several cages and a leg press. Our Strength and Conditioning coaches, Matt, James and Tristan set the weights program and are on hand for technical advice.

Small boats work and some eights work takes place on the Cam in Cambridge. We boat from Emmanuel College Boathouse. Most of the Eights and Fours work happens at Ely, a 15 minute train ride from Cambridge, where we have a 40km stretch available including a 5km straight. The 2017 season was the first campaign to make use of the Ely Boathouse.
The £4.9million Ely Boathouse was opened in December 2016 and provides a new state of the art home in Ely for the three university rowing clubs, CULRC, CUWBC and CUBC. The boathouse features a wet dock, four bays, rooms to rest, stretch and eat between sessions and a landing stage for three eights.
