About SSBC

SSBC is the student rowing club of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

Captain’s Welcome


SSBC Committee 2018-19

Rowing in Cambridge is not just a sport – it’s culture. Therefore, SSBC is more than a sport club, it’s a community which honestly can feel like a family. The Boat Club is Sidney’s oldest and largest society, with students across all subjects and years.

So, what to look forward to this year? After our second place finish in the Michell Cup, SSBC is already looking towards Lent and May Bumps. However, even sooner than that we have a packed Michaelmas Term ahead. With our new intake of novices, SSBC will feature in Queen’s Erg, Emma Sprints and, of course, the Fairbairn Cup. In addition to this, we’ll continue to be a social hub within the college, arranging a few fun activities for our novices and seniors!
