CUWBC Club History


CUWBC alumnae Jane Kingsbury (BB ’72) and Carol Williams (BB ’71)  have been working as Club Historians for nearly 10 years.  They have dedicated hours quietly behind the scenes, gathering memories and collections from alumni and supporters around the globe.


In 2015 they published their work in a beautifully illustrated book, aptly titled,  “Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club 1941 – 2014: The struggle against inequality”.
