Founded in 1844, BLBC is the oldest hospital boat club in the world and one of the largest sporting clubs at BL. The club caters for all levels of rowing experience, including for those who have never coxed or rowed before. We enter boats into many races throughout the year, ranging from the fun but seriously competitive racing at UH Bumps and Novice Sprints, to national races such as HORR and WEHORR.
BLBC also has a very healthy social side, including tables every Wednesday, a cherished Barts tradition, Brick Lane curries and infamous national and international tours.

BLBC is always looking for new members, regardless of your rowing and coxing experience!
