Below is a chronological list of competitions that BHBC is planning to enter, together with a list of social events, some of which are run by QCBC.
If you would like to race for BHBC, please ensure you have followed all the steps detailed in Competing with BHBC.
Please note the closing dates for entries for all events below, and get your requests to the Club Captain sufficiently in advance of this time. Please also note our insurance arrangements.
David Biddulph's excellent site includes a UK event calendar that is more up-to-date than the one on Rachel Quarrell's Rowing Service. When the dates of Cambridge University and College events (Lent and May Bumps and the Fairbairn Cup Races) have not yet been published, they are calculated based on the University of Cambridge Term dates.

BHBC is not comprehensively insured, as this is prohibitively expensive. This is the case with most boat clubs. Therefore if we cause damage through our own fault to any of the equipment belonging to QCBC, it is our responsibility to pay for any repairs or replacements. Therefore not only does the Committee expect a higher standard of care by BHBC members when we borrow the equipment of QCBC, but also that members act in good faith and pay for repairs if damage is caused. If members refuse to pay for damage they have caused, it is almost certain that we will in future be refused permission to use QCBC equipment.
BHBC is however insured for third party damage with Noble Marine Insurance Brokers Ltd., specialist insurers for boat clubs. This means that if damage is caused by any member of BHBC while they are racing or training for BHBC, they are covered for claims for damage to person or property up to the value of £2,000,000.00. Currently our policy covers damage while using only the following Queens' boats:
Other shells can be added to the cover with little difficulty so get in touch if you want to use:
