The generosity of the Segreants Trust means that we have one of the best fleets on the Cam, and have been able to purchase new equipment when needed. We have an extensive fleet of high-quality boats for rowers of every level, including several fine racing VIIIs, boats suitable for novices and a range of small boats.
