Downing College Boat Club is one of the most established and largest clubs on the Cam. The primary purpose of the Club is to represent Downing College, Cambridge in the Lent and May Bumps on the river. DCBC is the largest sports club at the College and provides unrivalled opportunities for all members to begin, or further their rowing at all levels.
One of the best equipped boat clubs on the river, DCBC continues to thrive thanks to generous support from the college and an extensive network of past members. Courtesy of excellent coaching from ex-members alongside the expert guidance of Ian Watson, the club Boatman, the Club enjoys continuing success both on and off the Cam. This year the Women's squad are looking to defend the Lent headship for the second year running, and are second in the May Bumps. The Men will be starting from second station in both races.
