Message from the President 2012

The Women's and Men's 1st VIIIs for Sumer VIIIs 2012

The Women’s and Men’s 1st VIIIs for Sumer VIIIs 2012

Welcome to Wolfson College Boat Club!

WCBC, now more commonly known as the Wolfpack, is made up of students from both Wolfson and St. Cross colleges. In recent years we have gone from strength to strength. In Summer Eights 2012, Wolfson crews got 7 bumps and gained 3 net places overall, tying for 9th place out of the 35 boat clubs. This is a fantastic achievement as the Men’s 1st VIII retained their highest-ever position of 4th in Division I, and the Women’s 1st VIII bumped New College, moving up to the Head of Division II. A massive congratulations to everyone who was involved in another incredible Summer Eights, and thanks to all of our dedicated supporters, many from overseas, who created the amazing atmosphere at the boathouse.

WCBC is keen to welcome everyone, and caters for a wide range of abilities. Many of our best rowers learnt to row at Wolfson and have never looked back! Rowing is a fantastic sport, and nothing beats the thrill of bumps racing, but it is also a brilliant way to meet new people and get involved in a great team: the Wolfpack.

The success of recent years would not have been possible without the dedication of the rowers, coaches and committee, but most importantaly without the arrival of novices. If you are new to Wolfson or St Cross, we hope that you can take a bit of time to have a look around the website, and start to get a feel of the atmosphere of WCBC. Hopefully you will then decide to sign up and give rowing a try!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our committee. We look forward to welcoming you to WCBC.

Katherine Henson, WCBC President 2012-2013
