Well done girls!

The big dig has finished!

17 tons of excavator made short work of levelling the site! After one day, hardcore was already going down.  Racks have been put back and new racks built.  The site now looks immense.

You can view more photos of the big dig in the photo gallery.

Thanks to all the hard work by members clearing the site over the last two weekends, the machine had a clear run at it.

About us

We are a relatively new club founded in 2004.  The club was born out of the Diamond44 celebrations which marked the 60th anniversary of the 1944 University Boat Race rowed at Ely. The Club colours, dark blue for Oxford and light blue for Cambridge, symbolise this connection. We serve Ely and the area north of Cambridge
