Welcome to JCBC

Welcome to the website for Jesus College Boat Club, Cambridge. The boat club of Jesus College, Cambridge was founded in 1827. Rowing has a long and proud history at Jesus and it is is one of Cambridge's largest and most successful clubs.

You'll find information about the club, the college crews and results here as well as the Fairbairn Cup races for novice and senior crews at the end of the Michaelmas Term.

Head of the Cam


JCBC entered three eights into the 2.6km Head of the Cam on Saturday 3 May.

An upper men's boat, racing as M2, recorded a time of 9:18, just a few seconds off LMBC M1 despite a small incident with the bank. With crews for May Bumps yet to form, this is a very promising result.

Head of the River Race 2008


JCBC entered an VIII into the Head of the River Race on Saturday 15th March. The race is a time trial for Men's VIIIs over the Boat Race course in reverse (from Mortlake to Putney).

We finished 148th in a time of 19:34. This put us 6s ahead of Downing I and only 2s behind LMBC I. This is a promising result, especially considering a number of crew members had attended a dinner on the previous night! This gives us a strong platform to build on for Mays, where M1 start 5th on the river.

Lents Getting-On Race


Two JCBC crews took part in the Lents Getting-on Race this afternoon to try to secure a place in the Lent Bumps. Despite windy conditions on the Reach, M4 rowed well but just missed out, finishing as the second-fastest non-qualifier in a time of 8:50. This was probably just a few seconds off qualifying - let's see you back for Mays!

W3 put in a good performance to secure a valuable place on the river and are starting 18th in division 3 (foot of the river) - the only way is up so good luck for Bumps!

Lent Bumps 2008


Lent Bumps start this coming Tuesday and JCBC have six crews racing. Division times are listed below: please come down to the river to support!
Results will appear here as the week progresses.

Pembroke Regatta 2008


Due to unexpected injuries and illness, only three JCBC boats raced in the side-by-side Pembroke Regatta, traditionally the pre-Lents form guide. W1 beat CCAT and Selwyn comfortably but lost to an unexpectedly strong Caius crew by a small margin in the semi-finals. W2 beat Magdalene II, First & Third II, Pembroke II and Hughes Hall/Lucy Cavendish I to take the second division pots! M3 beat Caius III by a sizable margin but lost by a very narrow margin (literally inches) to First & Third IV in the next round.

Peterborough Head of the Nene 2008


W1 and an upper men's boat raced 5km at Peterborough, giving many their first taste of off-Cam racing for some time. W1 performed well, but were disappointed to lose to First & Third by five seconds. The men's boat had a bad race and recorded a very disappointing time, completely unrepresentative of their potential.

Newnham Short Course 2008


Newnham Short Course (about 1700m) produced strong results for all JCBC crews. W2 produced a powerful and committed row to be the fastest second boat by 20 seconds and joint second fastest women's boat overall (only beaten by Emma and level with Catz)! W3, despite lacking experience in racing along this part of the river, rowed well to beat all other W3s and many second boats too. M3 rowed well and were unlucky to lose by a few seconds to many of their competitors. Bring on Pembroke Regatta!

Head to Head 2008


Four JCBC crews (including a decent complement of ex-novices) raced the Winter Head to Head (shortened to 2x2000m) on Saturday 19 January. Three crews won their categories and the other came second!

Fairbairn Cup 2007


The annual JCBC-organised Fairbairn Cup took place on 29 and 30 November. All JCBC crews, seven novice and five senior, took part and all put in strong performances, with the second women's boat taking the second VIII shield.
