COBRA BOAT CLUB

Being a member of CURC doesn’t end at graduation; the Club has a strong contingency of alumni who have provided many a legacy to the Club and continue to provide support in the form of COBRA BC.

The "Cardiff Old Blades Rowing Association" is an opportunity for social and racing events that support and fundraise for our alma mater. Our annual events include Alumni Regatta in September, meet-ups at HORR and HRR as well as a new London-based dinner held in the New Year.

In addition to the social side of COBRA, there is an opportunity for alumni to form project boats for events such as HORR and Henley Royal Regatta with support from Cardiff University Rowing Club. Successful projects include the 2019 qualification for HRR in the Thames Cup 8's.

 

If you used to row at CURC and have any questions about joining the Cardiff Alumni, forming a project boat, or how you can help support, then please contact the COBRA BC Committee by emailing us at curcalumni@gmail.com
