By sponsoring RCBC, we are offering you a unique opportunity to increase your exposure to the student population of Robinson, the University and with the wider rowing community in Cambridge. Robinson students study at one of the world’s top universities and many graduate with first class honours. The club can also offer unrivalled advertising opportunities. Your logo could be displayed on our website, Twitter and Facebook pages and on boat equipment or new team kit. Furthermore, the club organises an annual head race which can be sponsor-branded and accompanied by a sponsorship event.

Our ambitions

The development of our members and the opportunity to compete are of paramount importance to us, but are consistently limited due to financial restrictions. Our current priorities are:

  • Purchase of a single scull to support members participating in University level development programmes.
  • Purchase of a midweight 4+ for use by both men and women. This will allow the women to compete more frequently during Michaelmas.
  • Purchase of a new set of riggers and men’s blades to be used by the men’s 1st VIII.
  • Kit subsidy to help make the acquisition of essential training and race kit affordable for all members.
