The Alumni Association

Welcome to the King’s College Boat Club Alumni Association which was founded in 1993 with the main aim of keeping friends and alumni of the Boat Club in touch with one another and King’s rowing. Membership is open to anyone with a genuine interest in King’s rowing and you can join the Alumni Association here. As a member you will be invited to the races and to all other social events that the Alumni Association organises. You will also receive termly printed copies of Henry’s Eight, the boat Club newsletter.

Alumni with a keen interest in the Boat Club’s affairs and fortunes can become even more involved by joining the ‘Steering Committee’. Composed entirely of members of the Alumni Association, this body meets at least once a year and aims to provide advice, expertise, and most importantly, a measure of continuity in the face of the constant flux of student oarsmen and women. In common with all clubs we are happy to suggest ways that you could contribute to the club; these are summarised here.

In parallel with the foundation of the Alumni Association, the Boat Club archives were overhauled and a campaign was initiated to supplement its records. The response from alumni has been very good, and we continue to encourage past members to send their memorabilia on loan or as donations to the Alumni Association Archivist who has now built a sizeable archive of photos, dinner cards, Captain’s and President’s books and other memorabilia.

Finally, we would be grateful if you could encourage any other ex-members of the Boat Club, with whom you might still be in contact and who might not be aware of the Alumni Association’s existence, to also consider joining. Please give them the web address of this page – who knows, perhaps we could even organise a meeting (or outing!) of your crew for you. If you would like to become a member of the Alumni Association, please click here.

If you have any further questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the committee (see committee page for details).

We look forward to seeing you at the boathouse soon!
