Friends of Wolfson College Boat Club

Wolfson College Boat Club (WCBC) runs through the generosity of Wolfson College and the Friends of Wolfson College Boat Club. We rely on donations made to the Club to buy our equipment and to be able to offer the opportunity of rowing to our College members. Please help support our Club by joining the Friends of Wolfson College Boat Club.

Members of the Friends of WCBC receive a twice-yearly newsletter keeping them informed about what is happening in the Club, invitations to the Boat Club dinners and peace of mind that you are helping to maintain the Club. You don’t need to be a member of the Boat Club to join the Friends. There are two modes of membership: blades or life membership.

Blades Membership

You can become a Friend of Wolfson College Boat Club from only £3/month. This membership is designed to help generate regular and consistent income for WCBC, an invaluable support for us. Although the amount of £3 is the default payment, you can decide to pay more per month if you wish. When you adhere to this membership, you will receive:

  • Free tickets to Wolfson’s May Bumps marquee at
    1st post corner
  • Invitations to WCBC events
  • Regular newsletters

Life Membership

You can also become a Friend of Wolfson College Boat Club for life for £100. Joining as a life member, one is making a vital contribution to ensuring that Wolfson College can continue to provide its rowers with an excellent array of equipment. When you join, you will receive:
