Men’s lightweight rowing is defined as a crew average of no more than 70kg (max individual 72.5kg). This is the competition requirement and entry into a lightweight squad may be above this weight. Nutrition advice is available through all squads. The club is interested in hearing from anyone at Oxford or thinking of applying who has rowed before, is under 85kg, and wants to train at the highest level.
The Club represents Oxford each year in an annual Varsity against Cambridge. In 2019, for the first time, the Lightweight Boat Race was held on the Tideway on thr River Thames. The Club also competes throughout the year in national and international races, including the British Universities Championships, the Fours and Eights Head of the River Races, Henley Royal Regatta and invitational exhibition events in Europe and beyond.
